Hitting the sauce…

Tomato sauce that is! Pretty cool day. Went to church and then visited a new farm where I met a super sweet lady who I hope will become a canning buddy. More about that in another post.

Came home from the farm and went out to check on the gardens not expecting to pick more than a few peppers. To my surprise the tomato plants that have been seriously underperforming gave me a decent harvest.

So I decided to make some basil garlic sauce. My daughter picked some fresh basil and I got to work.

Fresh basil. One of my favorite smells of summer.

Angry tomato face!

Cooking down tomatoes

Smelling amazing!

Looking good!

My ‘little’ unexpected harvest yielded 8 pints of sauce!

Perfect!

Sitting here listening to some distant thunder, cool breeze blowing and sound of the lids sealing. Content and very blessed!
