      I planted 6 tomato plants this year. I though the plants are pretty much done, but within the last week, I got a huge harvest. I dont know what to do with all of them. Does any one know of a good tomato sauce recipe that I can freeze and not can.

        I know I am late to this but when I get a big harvest I clean, peel and core them and throw in a ziplock bag. When it is time to make sauce, defrost will get rid of some water.

          Tammy: Are you wonder woman in disguise?!.
          I don't know how you do... everything that you do!

          Anyways: I am giving the pics of your shadebox to my DH when he gets home from hunting birds in canada. He is going to build me one this winter. AND I want an elevated garden plot too. Demanding, I know. I'll help of coarse!

              My gardening story: So I live in a town home, I do potted veggies and herbs. First experiment was last year with Porter Dark Cherrie tomatoes, cilantro, basil and oregano.

              The Scoop from last year: My tomato initially did well and then out grew the pot, so lesson learned. My cilantro needs to be in a cooler spot cause it just bolted immediately. Basil and Oregano did perfect, my lesson learned is that I should have harvested it more, I threw away a lot and we ran out mid winter. I should have froze and dried more of it. LORD knows i had enough of it.

              The Plan:
              Plant tomato to bigger pot, prob a new breed/type of tomato. I would like to get some sort of long rectangular box planter or holder for individual herb pots. I think if I move the cilantro to the upper blacony with more shade and cooler it will do better. Probably try a pepper plant.

              Unfort I cant start anything till after mothers day due to the INSANE colorado weather, and risk of snow and spring freezes.

                I decided this week to start growing some of my own food. I've grown a couple of things in the past, but my fiance and I are going to build some planters and really try to get stuff going. Our next door neighbor is a master gardener, and she has offered as a wedding present to help us!

                Yesterday, I planted tomatoes, bell peppers, strawberries, and watermelon! I hope they all do well so I have yummy stuff to eat this summer!
