I can't remember exactly but I usually try to have 100 quarts of tomatoes canned each year. They are also excellent when I dump a quart into the blender and make hot tomatoe juice to sip on during the winter months.
I, again, thank Bonnie for givings us such great pictues and information on canning. If anyone else has something they would like to share, please let know.

It is nice, that people who don't even know you will take care of your property for you. We didn't call them and ask them - they just saw work and are doing it. Ours are not the only ones they are working on. They are helping other people, also.
Anna and I will take a good look at the cottage when we get there next year. We will decide if we will remodel the cottage or tear it down and build a new one. Will get a contractor out there to see what he thinks. When Bishop Eli bought the one he originally did, it was less expensive to tear down the old one and build a new one than it was to remodel it. Anna and I were thinking that it might be nice to have a two story - until Anna reminded me what I think of walking up and down those stairs every day.
The Mennonites and Amish are planning on sending missions down there to help. In fact, I believe some of the Mennonite trucks are down there or on the way with supplies for people. This has been a hard time on people in several states especially Texas and Florida. We must remember them in our prayers.
Well Anna's Father and step-Mother are settled in their home. Us men moved the furniture around, in, out, - whatever they wanted. When the women came in - we got out. They did all the cleaning, organizing, etc. Anything furniture they didn't want or aren't using is up in the attic of one of step-Mother's sons. We want them to save everything for a while. If they don't use by next spring, they said they would give it to family members or sell it.
Hardly seems that summer is coming to an end and fall is coming. Getting the last of the harvest done. Soon will be starting time to get ready for that white stuff.
Trust God's Wisdom,
