Yipeeee – enough tomatoes to process a batch.  This is the first harvest to 3 years that has yielded enough to put any up.  That is 30 pounds waiting to be turned in to pantry stash.

I included the lid product I use.  These are “Tattler Lids”  and are reusable.  I still use metal lids on items I will give away.

One of the questions I often get is “how do you do it all?” – and of course the answer is “I don’t!”

In the spring the chores are many and physically demanding.  Planting requires bending over and digging, and there is no way to do little bits because so many of the plant varieties share planting times.

So this weekend Saturday was spent planting starts from the nursery – I direct sow seeds when I can, but every year I get starts from the nursery to jump start some I have trouble with seeds.  This year the starts were strawberries, tomatoes, peppers, squash, cucumbers and some flowers.
