This Summer has flown by
just like some of the tornadoes
and hurricanes
we have experienced this year.

Our small garden -
tomatoes, peppers and onions
has done really well due to the circumstances
and I've been able to can
12 quarts of tomato juice,
but most of it has been made
from cherry tomatoes.

My sweet Sc
ottie-boy, Ruairi,
knocked over a flat of seedlings
early this Spring
that I didn't restart
so most of my tomato vines
are about 12 feet long
and cherry tomatoes,
but they have made juice just
just the same -
and when the Winter winds are howling,
I'll love that taste of Summer.

Blessings to all who visit here,


  1. Tomato juice - yummy - we bet you really will enjoy it through the winter months.

  2. As long as it still work and taste the same. I LOVE fresh tomatoes too. Is that why we havent seen you around lately?? LOL


  3. We'd love to taste some of those. Mom made us some vegetable soup this week and we'll have it for dinner tonight, but she didn't grow the veggies here. She says we're too much help in a garden. Have you ever heard of such a silly thing. How can we be too much help?

  4. I love popping a fresh cherry tomatoe in my mouth and getting that burst of flavor, and the juice is something you'll get to enjoy when 'fresh from your garden' is a memory!! :-)

  5. We bet that tomato juice is the bestest ever!

    Love ya lots

  6. I do not like tomato juice but you enjoy it! I have just dried two batches of the little tomatoes in our dehydrator. We have quite a few they are different types. Cherry, grape and others. Some came up on their own from last year. I think I may make some tomato jelly out of the next bowl full we get. Have a great week!
