Canning it Forward

We take back what we said about growing tomatoes in Maine. After promising to help can for an overwhelmed neighbor, this beautiful basketful was just delivered filled with Amish paste, Rose de Berne, and Striped German tomatoes still warm from his garden. Late as it was, it’s turning out to be a good year for tomatoes after all.

  1. Neighbors helping neighbors – what a special community you must live in. Enjoy your tomatoes but mostly your neighbors. :-)
