Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Tomato time!

No time to talk - its Tomato Season!


I'm hauling them in by the bucket load......


Its like an Easter Egg hunt - the vines are positively loaded!  And my oxhearts are still bangin' - I hauled in the grand-daddy of all maters.... it was almost 20 ounces!

If you are wondering where I am... I'm in the kitchen canning this huge harvest. What a joy to have such a productive garden!

Happy Friday everyone - do you have a bucket busting tomato haul?

What are you making? Sauces, or plain tomato chunks? I can't wait for mine to start coming in.....more than I can eat while working in the garden, anyways!

Wow your tomatoes look great! Its winter here and although I tried to grow some bushes undercover they are now black blobs after continual frosts, that experiement didn't work LOL

Would be interested in hearing about how you make your sauce etc...
