Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Oh No!Tomatoes, More Tomatoes

I thought I was done with  them,  the garden is cleared and my sister in law brings me  more tomatoes... What to do with all these tomatoes? I read where  I could freeze them whole without blanching  so will give it a try. First  they all had to be washed & dried then  put in quart  zip freezer bags. Cook some...but must Trim them and sort by size and color, then heat and  push through a seive. Cook them down and strain again.. finally Tomato  Sauce... I do  not want to see another  until its salad  prep time.. I must say I do love these red sweet gems..a little salt & on a fresh tomato is heavenly right from the garden.. What more could a farm girl ask for?  Now I can cook with tomatoes all winter and ad these to my canned ones as well as the great salsa I made earlier.. I think I did well this year in putting away a good harvest of Tomatoes.  and the Chickens love the scraps.... Now what about those veggie soups and pies? That's for another day... I need a   cuppa tea and a nap....
