A Little More Canning

I thought that I was done canning for this year but Steve and I talked about the fact that maybe we needed to can some tomatoes. On his way home from work on Friday he stopped at a little produce stand and came home with two bushels of tomatoes. That was my project for yesterday, getting them canned. Steve worked on cleaning off the garden, bringing in the left overs and getting it tilled. He also helped me with the last 1/2 bushel. We ended up with 35 quarts of tomatoes plus enough for a large batch of chili in the crock pot some day this week. It is a lot of work but I do enjoy the home canned tomatoes. Now maybe I can put the pressure cooker away!
