Red, Juicy and IN ABUNDANCE!


Oh boy! Bet you can guess what the vast majority of my day entails :0)

And this only shows a small portion of what we have on the vines..... Oh THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for such a harvest!!!!

Canned tomatoes
Stewed tomatoes
Salsa
Ketchup??? worth a try?
Spaghetti sauce??? Need to find a recipe to try...
Pizza sauce??? Have a recipe to try!

AND....Paul received a Food Dehydrator for Christmas last year that I'm curious to try out!!! I remember Judy dehydrating basil and tomatoes to create her own seasoning (blogged here), so I will attempt that as well, but I will actually MIX THEM TOGETHER! I LOVE tomato-basil EVERYTHING! Chips, crackers.....so...why not try to see what creativity can lead to if we have our own home-made "seasoning."

Happy Saturday!

Wow! Glad the missing leaves didn't bother your tomato harvest. That is an impressive collection. Sounds like you have a fun day ahead. Having spaghetti for dinner?

The only tomato ketchup I ever liked was what my mum made, I could have eaten it by the bottle

I definitely think you should try spaghetti sauce too! Though you could use the canned tomatoes later to make it. Looks like a very bountiful harvest and a lot of work for your weekend!
