We are getting a bumper crop of tomatoes this year. The weather is not much different than last year, but we'll take the tomatoes!
I'm going to give canning them a try. I have never done tomatoes so it'll be a new experience for me. Sue, do you have any advice for me? I have the basic idea - blanche them to get the skins off and then puree them if making sauce or chop them if canning the fruit. I'll be happy to hear any advice!
These smallish tomatoes are fabulous. I'd tell you their name but the tags are out in the garden. I'll have to look tomorrow. Our grape tomatoes are amazing too. Yesterday I did fresh mozzarella with freshly picked tomatoes. Yum!
How does your garden grow? Do you do vegetables, or just flowers or both?
