Our tomato crop doing well also. I have started freezing most of hours. Doesn't take as long and they work well for things I always used canned tomatoes to make - like chili, in soups and casseroles, etc.

You are lucky to be able to grow those, we live in the mountains, up north, and too cold to grow any tomatoes, the night temps are too cold and they won't flower, the plant will grow, and then the deer eat them.

Congrats on a wonderful crop! We tried a couple of times but here in south Texas it's SO hot and dry, and the landlord's kind of stingy with the water,....

Maybe this spring I'll try container gardening.

Keep it up!!! emoticon

Just got done getting my cherry tomatoes mixed up to freeze. Boy it's alot of work. Haven't done this before. My husband will seal them for me, than we can freeze them. He is getting his chili ready to freeze.. We grew a lot of chili's each year soo that he can make his salas. It is usually too hot for me to eat. We also try growing ghost peppers. Boy do we have a lot of them. If you live in Northern Colorado and want too buy some peppers let me know. We have all kinds and my husband will roasted them too.
