From vine to bucket, and bucket to jar! The bottom right picture does not give the rows of tomatoes justice. There were gobs of them! Big, medium, small. Green, half-ripe, full red and way too many that laid waste on the ground. We picked a bucket and a half. Our friend at Kennedy Farms charges only $5.oo for a 5 gallon bucket. Him & his Dad have been farming all their lives. They have pecans, peaches, peas, beans, and much more. They also raise cattle and have several chicken houses. We ended up with way more produce than we had anticipated but who could resist? My husband put the tomatoes up while I shelled peas and after two evenings of work we had a nice mess of goodies put up for the year.
