Tomatoes are taking over my kitchen! Last year I planted four plants, they produced way more than we could ever eat. Being the lazy person I can sometimes be, I left them there all winter. In the spring we weeded all the dead plants. I guess the seeds were in the ground because later I had little tomato plants all over the place. I did plant a few and for some reason they didn't do as well as the volunteer plants did. So what am I going to do with all these? And why is this post underlined?? Grrr! I have the hardest time posting here.I ended up with seven jars of salsa and seven quarts of Scott's Mom's green tomatoes. I did add some cauliflower. I found a site that said you could do that. I also did seven quarts of crushed tomatoes. I hope we will eat them. I think they will look pretty on the pantry shelves though.
Here is a close up of the green pickled tomatoes. Scott loves them. Jackson about hurled when he walked in the house. He has a serious problem with the smell of vinegar. The whole house reeked of it. I thought the smell of dill would linger but the vinegar killed that smell. They look yummy. I've never loved pickled veggies. If we end up having to eat them to survive I suppose I will learn to love them. I am excited for the salsa though. I just hope it's spicy enough to make Scott happy and yet mild enough that we can all enjoy it.
It was fun, I can't believe I got it done before we leave tomorrow for Disneyland. I feel so proud. *sniff,sniff*
