I lost access to my blog for a little while . . . so I'm way behind on posts! Here are a few photos from my own personal tomato festival:
My first batch of salsa . . . I had never canned anything before and was pretty nervous that I might end up with tomato splattered all over the kitchen. It seemed like a lot of work for the amount of salsa I ended up with, but things actually went smoothly - thanks entirely to my friend Amanda, who was kind enough to chop tomatoes with me all afternoon and walk me through the canning process!
