hope you all are doing well.

Good weather here. Been canning more tomato juice and next is sauce. Finally made spaghetti sauce using homemade tomato sauce, yay! Boy it takes a lot of tomatoes for sauce.

BTW I mentioned using a saline solution to get rid of critters in broccoli and brussel sprouts. Well with all the tomatoes the fruit flies have said "Hello". Solution pick tomatoes put in saline solution to wash them then cover.

Is there any other way that works? Have too many to cut and process quickly enough. I've learned a lot this year. Luckily Stony Jim remembers what he and his Mom used to do. Little things that can make a big difference in successful canning.

Well I hope you have a good day. Headed to ye olde grocery store now.
