The harvest this week was small. And it was a singular harvest. Most of the beginning of the week as cold and wet. Nothing was growing much except the fall seeds that sprouted. The rain stopped on Wednesday, but I waited until Friday to harvest. I was hoping waiting a day would make the cherry tomatoes not burst open when I picked them. I'm not sure it helped much. I lost about half the Chocolate Cherry tomatoes and all of the Principe Borghese tomatoes. The Gabrielle Ann did fine. I lost a few here and there, but overall most of them stayed intact.
So my harvest was small this week - barely over 10lbs. However I continued to can tomatoes from the week before. I made one pint of tomato juice and about four pints of tomato sauce. I put most of it into smaller jars, one cup and 1/2 cup jars, because then I will have whatever size a recipe calls for.
