Wow, I can't believe how many tomatoes I am getting. I just picked 8 more gallons, mostly San Marzanos and a few unidentified heirloom varieties that are carbon copies of each other. I've been cooking up sauce every other night.
I wish I knew what this other tomato was. It's a keeper whatever it is. The only other tomato I've grown that is so perfect and crack free is the rutgers, which I used to make sauce from but don't have too much use for since I found the San Marzanos.
I've made pizza sauce, spaghetti sauce, meatball sauce and barbecue sauce.
I'm quickly running out of room in my small stand up chest freezer.
With the price of food going up almost 20% in the last 4 years, it's silly not to grow what you need if you have the room.
and here's a picture of my Labrador/German Shepard/St. Bernard/English Springer Spaniel who likes to steal my tomatoes.....she's 90 lbs of spring loaded energy
