Pick Your Own Tomatoes

After a terrible tomato year in 2011, I am so happy to see the abundance of them this year. While we are getting quite a few from our garden, they don't amount to jars and jars of homemade tomato sauce, pasta sauce, ketchup, tomato paste and crushed tomatoes. I was so happy to see this sign at a local farm.

While the field was full of weeds (always a good sign of no spraying) and the plants a bit scraggly, the fruit on them was amazing! It was easy picking.  We spent an hour on Saturday picking 100 pounds of tomatoes and I sent Pieter and Ben back for another 65 pounds on Sunday. I have been busy in the kitchen and don't see the work ending for a while this week!

  1. Busy! That might be an understatement, but boy are we jealous of all those toms.
