beautiful Harvest

I took an afternoon away from working and picked all these (and more) and made a HUGE batch of tomato sauce with my Mother over the weekend. It is delicious and will be perfect on a cold, blustery night this winter!

I really didn't anticipate having so many tomatoes this year as my plants got some type of blight early on. I ended up ripping out my cherry tomato plants because they were ravaged and the fruit looked awful.

I had decided to leave the rest of the plants in the ground to harvest what I could - thinking it would be minimal. I was over-joyed with the amount that I ended up picking - and making things with. I've made salsa, stewed tomatoes and that huge yummy batch of tomato sauce. Plus we've eaten a ton.

The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest.

I'd love to know, what did you harvest this summer? Enjoy your day and be thankful for the happy; unexpected surprises in your life!


  1. they look yummie and great pics---glad you got to enjoy them....

  2. Pickles, pickles and more pickles. My sister in law and I got together and made a bushel and a half of dills for a total of 68 large jars. A first for both of us and mmm are they good. I've gone through a jar and a half since Labour Day wknd. Tomorrow ... I work with tomatoes. :)

  3. No harvest for me here in Phoenix :( One must really have a green thumb to grow anything in this heat! Your tomatoes look scrumptious!
