Harvesting

Scott harvested over 50 roma and beefsteak tomatoes today. So that of course warranted a trip over to my sisters tonight for us to make 4 containers of spaghetti sauce and 5 of salsa. I went on to the Mrs. Wages website and they also carry packets to make ketchup and pizza sauce. None of the stores in town carry these and it is probably to late to order online. I might start looking around the internet for a recipe for the pizza sauce. We make home made pizza at least once a week. Scott also brought up from the garden today bell peppers, banana peppers, cucumbers, and cantaloupe. So today was all about making sauces and tomorrow will be all about baking. If anyone would have asked me a couple of years ago if I would be doing all of this with the garden, chickens, etc. I would have told them no way. But I do enjoy it and feel ties to days of old.

We are getting tons of tomatoes right now. I think I've got about 13 qts of sauce in the freezer. I make my roasted tomato sauce almost every night to keep my table free enough for us to eat at!I use the same sauce for everything- pizza, pasta...
