Tomatoes!

My dh picked this table full of tomatoes this morning. He cut them up while we were working on school.
Then in the afternoon Dh worked the colonder while I filled the jars with juice & put them in the pressure canner.
And this is the result: 44 quarts of tomato juice!
I didn't plan this picture, but there in the background on one of the high chairs, is an overflowing bag of green peppers. Dh & ds picked them this afternoon. I'd like to try to make green pepper jelly. Most of them I'll dice & freeze so I wont have to buy the hard waxy green peppers that they sell in the stores in the winter.
