Chained to my Stove

Or....I hate my bushel basket!!

This will be my weekend:

These will be made into tomato juice (Todd likes it for a morning drink with something added - but I forget what), more tomato sauce and some whole tomatoes.

These I will make pickles out of - I'll post the recipe the next time I blog.

Plus the 10 dozen ears of corn I picked up from our Amish neighbor to freeze, and the bushel of peaches I need to pick up tomorrow to can.

And if all the tomatoes that are out in the garden ripen, I will have about 3 more bushels to do something with at some point. Too bad the weeds aren't putting a damper on my tomatoes.

But I'm not thinking about that just yet.


P.S. - I forgot I also have a dozen or so rather large onions to do something with - any suggestions??? (I'm thinking dry them in the dehydrator)
