a convergence of tea time thoughts for ladies

Summer full of tomatoes

this video has me thinking of doing this is in the backyard when we get 90 degree weather again!    I did dehydrate some tomatoes in the dehydrator.

I was picking a roaster pan full every day through August and September.  Had 5 different kids- Brandywine’s, Colossal, Abe Lincoln, Dr. Wyche Yellow (was my favorite), and a few others.

These tomatoes have been coming in handy and they lasted till November. I made a lot of tomato soup to freeze and I was adding up the savings when I think of a can of soup is at least $1.19.

imageIt’s nice to be able to pull out a frozen portion of tomato soup;  beef and barley too which takes a lot of tomatoes for the broth.  I froze  tomatoes plain to make fresh beef and barley soup.  Isn’t Beef and Barley the best soup there is?
