No Time To Spare

I had been harvesting a lot of my vegetables lately. I can't find time to drop 300 EC a day for each of my blog anymore. I hope this gets better soon. Canning tomatoes takes a lot of time. I had to sterilized the jars. Then blanch the tomatoes and put them in ice water. Peel them and slice them and put them in the jar. After that add some water and lemon juice into it. Then the bathing part, 40 minutes after it boils. To much pots to wash and bowls. It doesn't help that I have such a tiny kitchen. Plus taking care of my 2 little ones, picking up the other two at the bus stop and cooking dinner, giving baths and putting them to sleep. When they finally goes to sleep I am too tired to do anything else.
At least when I home school them we don't need to leave the house until the weekend for swimming or bowling. And I only need to teach them four hours a day. Then they can do what ever they want the rest of the day. And that goes to me also. While they are doing what ever I can be online...well I hope it's that easy.

This brings back memories.

Don't you just love the way those jars look once you are done. It is almost a shame to open and use them. LOL Hey, I gave you an award.

Janna, I have made 24 jars of tomatoes for our winter use. I could have made more but that's all the jar I got.

Karen, I think I'm going to have a hard time opening them. Those lids sticks to these jars so tight. Anyway, thanks for the award, it's already posted.
