Crazy Tomato and Watermelon Harvest – 83 pounds worth!

This week was a big harvest weekend where we spent a whole evening picking vegetables and the entire day of Sunday making stewed tomatoes, diced tomatoes and tomato sauce.  I am pretty sure that I will never need to buy tomato sauce again.  This Summer we bought a mini storage freezer just for our garden and it’s about 75% full and we have a good 2 months left of gardening this year (not counting Fall veggies).  I’m going to have open a produce stand, anyone want to stop by?  I give veggies out for free! :D)

(I apologize for the quality of these pictures, it was already dark out by the time we got the tomatoes inside)

First up tomatoes.  We picked 43 pounds of tomatoes this weekend!  Wild, right?  
This is a really heavy crate, too heavy for my weak arms.  I picked it up, Matthew snapped the picture, I threw the crate down and then fell to the floor in weak power.
Hahahahaha...help!

How do you feel about traveling?  I love exploring new places, meeting new cultures and enjoying all the new foods.  I also feel that traveling is extremely exhausting.  I think it’s the whole process of getting there and getting home is what wears me out.  Who likes waiting in airport security lines for them to check your hair bun?  And who likes hearing their plane is going to be 4 hours late?   Also, I’m a homebody.  I love my own bed, my own tea cup, my daily routine and especially our cats.  I miss those critters so bad while I’m away, I can’t wait to walk through the door and pick them all up in big hugs. 

 When traveling you need to be prepared.  When we went to the Middle East earlier this year there were certain things that we couldn’t bring into the country and there were some things I forgot to pack that we definitely weren’t able to buy there.  I really don’t like to waste money on a new bottle of aspirin when a sudden travel headache comes up when I know I have a brand new bottle at home waiting for me in the medicine cabinet.  That’s why I always travel with a first aid kit.  It has the basics of what you need when away from home, in case you have a headache, get a cut or need some energy when you get 2 hours sleep.

Ever feel like this? This was in Berlin when we landed and got to the hotel.  Yawns.  Even worse, the bed was super comfy which meant we never wanted to get up.
