Fall Harvest

While my mom was here last weekend, we decided to make good use of the 4 or so bags of tomatoes we had just picked as well as the green beans that my fridge was overflowing with. Our garden was really slow coming on this year but now we are right in the thick of our tomato harvest, all 14 plants! We have them coming out our ears!

I decided to freeze the green beans, since I don't love them canned.

Canning tomatoes is so easy and I love having them for the whole winter! I think I will have to do it every weekend for a month so I don't let them go to waste!

This is less than half of what we ended up with. We did 10 quarts and 13 pints. I have enough tomatoes to do at least that many more this weekend! I guess I better get some more jars and lids!

It was so fun to do this project with my mom, not to mention very helpful! Though it is easy, it is kind of a big job and having someone to help you is so nice! Thanks Mom!

You are going to have to give me some of your recipes for the canned tomatoes! How nice to have your mom up to help you with that!

Looks like you have been busy! I've been canning peaches, raspberry jam, jalapeno jam and peach jam. Charley says I'm addicted.... I want your recipe for the tomatoes. That's what I want to do next. :)
