More fun with tomatoes!

My husband and I made our first attempt at canning on Sunday.   We had some success and also some failure, in the form of tomato soup.  How can tomato soup be a failure- well, when you are trying to can stewed tomatoes to be used to make spag sauce at a later date, tomato soup just doesn't cut the mustard!


We had 21 pounds of tomatoes!



Diet Coke essential for chopping tomatoes.



Anyone want to come over for a Bloody Mary?
