Then in early August we made a flying (by car) trip to Kansas City for my cousin's funeral. It was there I learned that one of my youngest Swanson relatives--if I do the math correctly I think she's a third cousin and she's just starting middle school--had just started up an Instagram account. Her posts were so fun and positive and uplifting, that I just had to get myself into this Instagram stuff!
So here's my first post. I cut out the "likes" to protect their privacy.
So, yes, today was another canning day, maybe the last one this year. We've done batches of spaghetti sauce, picante sauce, three batches of tomato chutney, plus just plain canned tomatoes. This time Leann said I could can some quarts to give to her Mom since we really didn't need any more. I just couldn't let all those Roma tomatoes go to waste. And most people around here have had their fill of tomatoes AND cucumbers for this year. Remember the zucchini joke and keeping your car locked? Tomorrow is another Saturday Market, so maybe we can sell/give away some more!
Anyone need any tomatoes?
