Swimming in Tomatoes

OK, OK, I'm up to my eyeballs canning tomatoes :) And going on dates with the Mr. .. and frying chicken dinners for my kids .. and sending daughter to college this week .. and putting the garden to bed .. and looking for my paper to send to Dr. B. The sky is falling, it just hit me on the head ;)

My Mama and Daddy always canned a ton. Tomatoes, green beans, saurkraut, ketchup, relish, pickles, plus they froze greens, corn, butter beans, apples...I could go on and on.
It was a big part of their lives and ours! I miss the cases full of goodies Daddy always sent home with us when we went to visit.
Thank you for the walk down memory lane!

You are probably at your best when so busy? I admire all you get done! My energy level has about a 2 hour limit....and I messed my back up crawling around in the attic hefting things around. You know how men folk carry things up for you and leave them sitting right at the top of the attic steps? Hmmmm. somebody's got to do all these things right? =)
