Anna says we're getting close to meeting our goal of enough soups and sauces to get us through till next year.

The plan is to dry most of the excess and make enough ketchup to last the rest of this year and most of 2012.

Yep, I kept thinking of making a post about the blight since it's been there neary all along. But it's hard to complain when I harvest at least half a bushel of tomatoes every week!
