    i picked beans today and watered, and of course canned whole tomatoes.Enchilda sauce here is the link I made the first one there is 3 on that same page, I toasted everything on my charcoal grill after making dinner, http://www.sbcanning.com/2012/04/enchilada-sauce-in-jars.html super easy doesn't even call for peeling the tomatoes. and pressure canned 2 quarts of beans with the sauce....I still have about 50lbs of tomatoes on my table and need to pick more at home and the MIL tommorow... anybody have any good tomatoe recipes? I plan on making hot balls also as now the large ones are tuning i have no need for the cherry tomatoes. Chickens are loving it they get all the cores skins bruised parts they actually make a big fuss whenever i walk out side if i am carrying any kind of container.

    Here is what I do when canning and blanching . I use the turkey burner . I blanch in the large pot and basket . I process in the water bath canner . Heats water faster and keeps the heat outside . Plus you can duck into the house for some AC .

    Picked 5 good looking poinsett cukes.
    The one we cut tasted amazing.
    Hoed, watered, picked figs & white/bronze muscadines.

    Tomorrow I get to work in my garden away from home, my monthly maintenance on a couple commercial beds of flowers.
