Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas.  Now as you all know, it is supposed to be summer here in the sunny Mangamahu valley.  Not that you would know judging from the wind, rain and cold temperatures that We have been experiencing lately. However, it looks like summer may have decided to join Us over the last few days.  Needless to say the last days of summer makes daddy’s thoughts turn to preserving summer produce.  This year, like last year they brought 20 kgs (44 lbs) of tomatoes for the princely sum of $20 for daddy to put into jars.  Would you like to see photos, of course you would.

And what were the three bestest maremmas in all the land doing.  Why having their pre-morning dinner nap.  Love Nellie, Jasper and Itai.

Me and a bone inside. You must be confused.

  5. Ghostwriter used to do that kind of canning a long time ago. Oh, she says she saw huge field filled with tomatoes growing in South Florida where she went to visit recently. It would have been enough for hundreds of cans! (I love to eat tomatoes raw, and so did Angel Joey dog. He said our Patron Saint Old Charisma taught him how to figure out if a tomato is ripe and ready to eat off the vine.)

  6. What an amazing garden bounty! If it makes you feel any better, our winter has been dry, dry, dry too. *Sigh*
