Tomatoes and Peppers

I have different varieties of tomatoes in my gardden this year but the one that did realy well is the roma and cherry tomatoes.   Roma tomatoes are great for coking but since I have tons, I decided to ca some of them.  I also have  Rusian and pear tomatoes which we have been juicing and making salsa since there's pleanty of them.
 My pepers  also did great this year.  One of our neighbors gave me  thre selings of  Thai peppers and  there's a lot of  fruits in it.
 My bell peppers are  also doing great.   I am jpust starting to harvest them.  For some reason, they are the last ones to produce fruits.
 Thai opeoers are suoer hot. I love spicy fod so I  love having these  hotties.
 This pear tomatoes are great fir salsa or salad. They're a bit sweet and you can even eat them for snacks.
So far, U have canned 30 quarts of tomato sauce and  8 pints of salsa which would last us for one whole year.  Ever since I started gardening, I never bought any  tomato sauce anymore.  Shadow Shots

There's nothing better than growing your own veggies, especially tomatoes. We grow a ton of them every year.

Growing your own tomatoes is smart. They taste so much better than store bought ones.

It is so cool that you grow all of these and can them yourself. It sounds so cool being able to cook with your own tomato sauce and salsa.

Awesome post. I have just gotten in to growing indoors as well as outside. Planning on really starting my garden early next year. I already have seeds. I can't wait.

I have grown my own tomatoes in the past :). This year though I only grew potatoes, I had a lazy gardening year :)

Those are lots of tomatoes. Canning them is a great idea. I have a few tomato plants that I grow in pots.

Ah, any fresh home-grown tomatoes are wonderful treats, sweet and tasty!

I have tried three seasons to start a garden, it is a ton of work so great job. Those tomatoes look yummy.

Yay for having your own garden! It's my dream one day to have a garden. I love it when my mother in law sends me home with some of her homemade sauce.

These are perfect ideas to do with the amount of tomatoes and peppers you have for sure. They look just beautiful. I have never tried pear tomatoes before so now I will have to try them. We love snacking on tomatoes with a little salt and pepper. Yummy!!

I would love to make Salsa. I will have to plant a garden in the spring.

It's great that you have your own tomatoes available in your garden. How many months does it take for them to be ready for harvest?

Tomatoes and peppers are my favorite things to have in our garden. We didn't do a garden this year because we thought we were moving and I feel like I really missed out!

I tried to grow my own tomatoes, but they just didn't flourish. I am going to give it another try next year.
