Las Vegas is one of the few places in this country where you have to buy soil, but from that purchased soil you can get a decent crop.

Does anyone have a couple dozen good recipes for tomatoes — especially ones you can freeze?

    My mother always canned stewed tomatoes, which were delicious. Homemade chili sauce is also a treat. She froze spaghetti sauce. How about I come over and relieve you of some of your burden? 😀

    I have never tried freezing salsa. Tomatoes, I think, are more suited to canning. Plus they are acidic, so low-risk for spoilage. Easy to can. I have the official Ball canning book if you want to borrow it.

    Beautiful crop, Mitch!

  4. All that boiling and hot jars makes canning a chore. That’s why I prefer freezing.

    Very nice production; expect a fall-off soon due to the soaring temps! What varieties are working for you?

  7. There is a variety called Heatwave. I have five of those and a ringer was mixed in on the shelf or I’d have six. Others are cherry and yellow pairs.
