So on Monday, I picked this from the garden.
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 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.
