So far I have canned 33 pt 1 qt of tomato juice. and 11 qt 1 pt of chunk tomatoes for chili.' My grandson , Jared from N.C. just phoned and said he made Chili from my tomatoes and red kidney beans and hamburger his mom gave him. He was so thrilled and thanked me that I had given him some home canned things
My son was in Italy and saw these tomatoes on salad bar and took the seeds out of them and put on napkin and brought home to USA for his dad to plant and look what developed from a vinegar tomato from Italy.
We have 94 tomato plants and I am busy canning juice and whole tomatoes. They took for ever to get ripe
with all the cold weather we have had and now all the rain we have found some that have black spots in them.
We have the nicest patch of green beans we have every grown. I have canned 36 pt.34 qt. for my self and 28 qt for my daughter and given away to my friend who canned 14 qt. plus given to neighbors and friends/ I also canned 51 pt of yellow beans. Froze 106 cups of sliced carrots. Next will be Red Beets, and if the 94 tomato plants ever get red I will be happy.Then I can start stitching again.
