Poor timing

I signed up to participate in Elsie Marley's Kid's Clothes Week Challenge this week. But I also bought 50 lbs of tomatoes and decided it was time to give up on the tomatoes we grew ripening anymore. This is what my sink looked like yesterday.

That's just the stuff from our yard. I now have 14 quarts of tomato sauce and approximately 22 pints of green tomato salsa. Today I need to finish off the green tomatoes by making green tomato ketchup. I also have to finish turning 15lbs of Roma tomatoes into sundried tomatoes, and I bought a few more pickling cucumbers to turn into garlic dills. Obviously, I didn't do any sewing yesterday. I might be able to do some tonight, maybe. We leave for Michigan on Friday and so I really only have three days to do a week's worth of sewing. I'll see what I can get done, but it's pretty obvious that the answer is "not much."

I did get stuff cut out over the last few weeks. And I will get them finished. Just not now.

I filled my big pot with cut up tomatoes for ketchup and that used less then half the tomatoes left. There's no way I have time to do multiple batches, so I'm giving the rest to my lovely canning friend, Kimberly. I think if I'd had these things before and knew we liked them, I could rustle up the energy to do it, but I haven't and so I won't. If I like it enough I may purposely ignore my tomatoes next year.
