Domestic Goddess

The tomatoes are ripening at a much faster pace now. We keep a chart on the refrigerator, tallying each day's tomato harvest. So far, we have harvested 175 pounds, but 62 lb.9 oz was just from this haul we got yesterday. There are many more to come...
I am trying to freeze, dry and can at the same pace as the harvest. I have now canned 21 quarts of tomatoes - my first venture into canning ever. The Gold Medals will make an exotic golden meal next winter.

Sara's Noir des Carmes muskmelons are also ripening--they all decided to ripen at once. These melons are small - perfect for two people, and SO yummy.
