More tomatoes then we know what to do with?

We worried our tomatoes were not going to ripen, because we had a very cool July. Never fear, our hot weather came in August. "Yay, our tomatoes will ripen" we all yelled. As we impatiently waited for that first tomato. We always  make BLT's with our first ripe tomato. After a long winter, we were getting impatient.
We have enjoyed, tomato salad, BLT's, fresh tomatoes with breakfast, lunch and supper. I have canned tomato sauce and tomato juice. I am now freezing tomatoes. And guess what? 93 percent of American gardeners grow tomatoes. So I can not give any away. Smile! Actually, we are blessed with the great harvest! How about you? Did you grow tomatoes this year and how did your crop do?


  1. Yeah! I knew you sere waiting for them to ripen. My tomatoes did not do well this year. (between the deer and bugs) The last two years I got a lot. I made double batches of a freezer tomato sauce -- very good in the middle of winter.

  2. Wonderful that you got such a great crop! Most years we do too, but this year it was b.l.i.g.h.t. wah. Still, we have enough for eating, and I still have tomatoes leftover from last year. Enjoy those tomatoes! They're one of the main reasons I plant a garden - tomatoes, peppers, green beans, and carrots (and raspberries, strawberries, blueberries......................................)

  3. We had a great harvest too! Just had some tonight.
    Carla what is your method on freezing them?...Earlene

  4. I was given 2 flats of them but sadly the bugs were in them and I was only able to get 4 good ones.
