We're halfway through August and I'm already halfway to my tomato goal for the year. Today I canned up 7 more quarts of tomatoes and a large batch of Annie's Salsa. It certainly looks like we'll exceed the number of quarts of tomatoes that we need. They'll be put away for a rainy day, or year, as the case may be. A glut of tomatoes is a very good thing.
This is the first year that I've been able to make the salsa entirely from produce that I grew. Usually the peppers are way behind and I have to get them from the market. This year they beat out the tomatoes. I love running out to the garden for green peppers and jalapenos. It's so much more wonderful than getting in my car.
