I've Got a Hot Date!

It's in my kitchen with 60 pounds of tomatoes.
All red, ripe and waiting to be canned!

I miss my canning partner.
She could sure peel some tomatoes.

Heather 1995

My little girl and I spent many summers in the kitchen together peeling and canning tomatoes.
I miss her since she's grown up, married, and living too far away.

Love you, Heather!


  1. Look at those beautiful tomatoes! Yum!

    Sweet photo of your adorable Heather :)

  2. Wow! That's a lot of tomatoes! Try to keep cool while you're canning. And, next year make a date with Heather to do this together!


  3. That's a lot of tomatoes! I use canned tomatoes in so many recipes. Fresh tomato sandwiches are the best. Yummo! Happy canning. Tammy

  4. What farmer's market did you go to to get them? Our tomatoes are coming on but no where near what we need for the year.

  5. Thanks for all your sweet comments! I'm taking little breaks from my canning to read them.

    Denise, I didn't get my tomatoes from a farmer's market. They were given to us by a church friend. Now that's a good friend, huh?

  6. What a little sweetie! She sure was cute! Canned tomatoes sound so good. I know your family will appreciate all your hard work. Have a good day! Twyla
