We have about a thousand tomato plants, and NO TOMATOES! Ok, that is an exaggeration... We have had 3 red tomatoes. I have lots and lots of green ones, but no red ones. I think this bunch of romas here have been green for about 6 or 7 weeks...
I picked the last of the cabbage from the community garden plot, and gave 2 heads to my friend, and then worked so much that the other 2 sat on the counter and wilted away to the point of worthlessness.
I spent a day down at Momma Gardener's house in Mt Vernon, and she sent me home with a grocery bag of tomatoes, so I attempted my first batch of tomato sauce for canning, and I let it cook and cook an cook, and it was still too watery, so I canned tomato soup instead :) I have been reading about canning tomatoes, and you are supposed to put citric acid in with the tomatoes, and I didn't do that... So I am thinking I should just eat my tomato soup before something weird happens to it. We also spent the day with my sisters kids, and Grady just loved picking raspberries!! His momma swears he hates raspberries, but he was eating them as fast as I could pick them! Little Shelby on the other hand is just a puking machine right now, so I dont really like hanging out with her too much. She is a cutie though!
I made 2 beautiful jars of cinnamon granola this morning, as well as one ice cube tray worth of pesto. Hopefully my tomatoes will ripen and I can attempt to can properly!
