So after last year's large garden, and all the canning I did (you can view my canning totals on the blog, left sidebar, down at the bottom: http://all-natural-mama.blogspot.com/), I thought I had way more jars than we would ever use. It works that way, doesn't it??
Well, I was making a lasagna today for Sunday dinner, and was in the basement looking over my shelves. They are getting bare! I only have 4 jars of salsa left. Let's see, looks like I canned 35 jars - and if I remember correctly most of them were quarts (the bigger jars). I'm down to about 5 jars of pasta/pizza/marinara sauce combined (I canned 56 quarts!) . Only a few stewed tomatoes left - looks like I canned 29 of those - I use these mainly in soups. Wowza - I need those tomatoes to start growing a bit more quickly!
Maybe if you all do a chant... a tomato-growing chant, along with some sort of dance.... they'll grow more quickly? And let's hope the weather stays about the same - nice & hot (no cold summer like last year), so the tomatoes actually make it to harvest!
Ready? One, two, three.... dance & chant! I'm not about to buy any yucky tomato products from the store, lol!
