Two weeks after our first Tomato Sauce Party at Eatwell Farm, we couldn’t resist going back to the farm for Round 2.  We got to the farm even before the official festivities began and got ourselves set up.  Steve and Sierra joined us again, and this time Melissa, Lauren, and Kaycee also drove up to join us.  I didn’t take as many pictures this time because 1) we had taken a lot the week before and 2) I had some serious tomato products to be producing.  We didn’t finish processing jars until after 11 PM, and we ended the day with over 60 jars of tomato sauce, salsa, heirloom bruschetta, bloody mary mix, and tomato juice.  It is going to be glorious to enjoy these fantastic tomatoes when the weather is cold and dreary.

Much of the products of the weekend on our kitchen table (where it unfortunately sat for a few days while I got my act together enough to label and store them).

Overall, I’d say that this year’s tomato parties were a great success.  We ended up with just under 100 jars of amazing organic tomato products, the only cost of which was the jars.  Thanks, Eatwell!  We are so proud to be members.

And on a random note, it was fun to get a text message from Sierra letting me know that a picture from our home was featured on Food in Jars last week.  These shelves have been a godsend this summer.
