lucky you. My favourite smell is warm tomato plants !
For us to lose contact with the soil results in real unease and maladjustment...to recapture it affords profound joy and inward comfort. Sam Ogden

Missed this thread!! Guess what I did on Monday? :lol:

Found one of these mills during the winter which is wonderful and makes the job so much easier of getting rid of skin and pips.

Done :iconbiggrin:

......and in case anyone is wondering :shock: :lol: :shock: , this is the remains of my frozen whole toms (big and cherry) now bottled, cos I needed the freezer space desperately.

Don't do water bathing, so long as tom sauce is boiling as it goes into very hot sterilised jars it seems to work a treat.

I don't know if we will ever get through all of last year's tomatoes though, as I have so much frozen sauce as well as bottled. :shaking: :dontknow:
