Woke up to a brisk 48°F outside. There appears to be a frost on the windows of the truck, and top of the trash can, so I'm hoping it has not affected my herbs or garden.
It's not going to last (we are heating up again to the 90's), but I will admit, I slept in, as the cooler weather was a welcome. However, I have more tomatoes and bell peppers to take care of, and running very behind now.
Anything "sauce" tomato days are long days here. There is the chopping, dicing, then heating until a puree, then removing peels and seeds, then reduction, then canning. Canning in the water bath is typically 35 minutes or longer, depending on what I'm canning. My husband was shocked at how many ingredients (and the time to do it) go into tomato soup.
I'm brewing some coffee to get this day started, but hope to be back with an update. Thank you all for your potluck ideas. I do appreciate it.
