You can never have too many..

After the late blight last year and not getting a single tomato (okay ONE tiny cherry tomato), I am ever so grateful for the bounty of tomatoes this year. Actually, it's an avalanche and we are loving it! The canner is going full tilt..

..full steam ahead!

Harvesting home grown produce is so satisfying. looks like you are enjoying a bountiful harvest.

A canner purring away is a wonderful thing... along with good music, even better!

I agree, never too many tomatoes. I'm torn between rationing and gorging.

Just got back from Pittsburgh after settling my daughter at RMU. I must tell you how much I love your area. Sewickley is such a lovely little town, I am truly in love with it.

How fortunate you are to live in such a wonderful part of the world.
Oh and the shopping is pretty darn good as well!

I KNOW!!!!!

Ours were wiped out last year too. I don't know what I'm going to do when not just walking out back and plucking one to eat.

BLT's will just not be the same.

I agree, I never have enough tomatoes.

Glad you've got lots this year!
