So on Monday, I picked this from the garden.

Today's harvest.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, I was out of town.  On Thursday there were two colander-fulls of tomatoes to be picked, between my yard and the Tomato Annex, including the very first ripe San Marzano tomatoes from the plants I started from seed.  I was so giddy that I completely forgot to take a picture.

And this afternoon, I have this.

Six pints of home grown tomato sauce!

Six pints of gloriously rich sauce from roughly 15 pounds of mixed-variety tomatoes.

It's not the first time I've put up tomato sauce, but this IS my very first ever home-canned tomato sauce from tomatoes that I grew myself in (mostly) my own yard of my own house that I bought all by my own self.
