The tomato plants are coming into full harvest.  I say coming into because we planted tomatoes in two waves – wave 2 hasn’t ripened yet. Even so, we have been feeding them to the chickens, the pigs, our neighbours, selling some, and we are eating lots too.  I have taken to cooking and freezing them.  It actually works out well because while I can buy tomato sauce in the market, one cannot purchase stewed tomatoes.  So I am freezing what I can.  I am also freezing whole the little yellow cherry tomatoes that Jon likes to eat like grapes and come winter weather, roast them for part of a meal.  Next year we might invest in a dehydrator, and preserve even more.
