Tomato Season!

Our four little tomato plants have been producing fairly well this year (much better than last). In the mornings, the kids go out and harvest the 'perfect' ones for the day. It never fails to surprise me that Justin understands which tomatoes are ripe and ready to pick and which are not. I guess I shouldn't be amazed when he has a teacher like Alex.
Next year I want a few more full-size tomato plants. The cherry tomatoes are great for the kids -- they snack on them all day long, but I want more to can! So far (with the help of 20 lbs from our CSA) I have 9 quarts put up for our winter chilis, stews and pizza sauces.
