So many things to can, so little time!
If you have the canning bug, than this scenario is very familiar to you:
I had between 7-10 gallon sized freezer bags of tomatoes in the freezer. Since tomatoes don't ripen all at the same time, it's necessary for me to freeze them for awhile until I have enough to do a canning session. The hubster and I had planned on doing up the tomatoes this past Sunday.
And then I went to the Saturday morning Farmer's Market.
And bought another bushel of tomatoes.
I couldn't help it!! They were extremely affordable, and we were gonna be canning anyway!!!
BTW, if anyone wants to know how much a bushel of tomatoes is, it's about the equivalent of a paper grocery bag filled to the top.
With a zillion tomatoes.
And it's heavy.
When it was all said an done, By the end of Sunday night, we had canned 17 quarts of tomatoes That's QUARTS. not pints. it's a lot. See here:

I was pretty chuffed by the end of Sunday.
