Right now we are in peak harvest time for tomatoes and my goddess to we ever have a glut of these beauties! This morning I got to use the food mill for the first time to make tomato sauce. We have a beautiful hand crank mill and it works like a dream. I was finding that I didn’t like how watery it was when I was using the attachment for making sauce so I decided to use the one for salsa. It has bigger holes so you get a slightly chunkier sauce. It looks great! We have also been making salsas and soups with the tomatoes.
Last summer the farm had a late blight and they didn’t get as big of a harvest as this year. The main differences in care have been tying the plants, periodic fertilizing with some manure water from our horses on the roots, and more regular watering. It certainly would seem that all the hard work paid off.
