Dried Tomatoes!

The last basket of tomatoes, nearly finished. I know that I should be so grateful for an abundant fall harvest, I should not complain about the seemingly never ending supply, I should humbly acknowledge the opportunity for preserving these precious fruit and should look at this as a labor of love. We thank all of those who graciously accepted bags of tomatoes slipped into their shopping bags, left on the back seat of their vehicles, snuck onto front porches during the night..... and did not bring them back.  I realize that there are many people in the world who do not have tomatoes, I  am ashamed to say that I secretly thank the winter freeze fairies for biting the remaining fruit hanging in the barn, OH, DARN!!! not to worry,  ( the chickens will have a feast).These dried tomatoes will be used in the tomato and basil goat cheese, Yummy! We are making preparations to open the market. Our opening date will be Thurs. Mar. 10. Our hours will be the same, Thurs, Fri, Sat. from noon until 4:00pm. When the U-Pick berry season starts near the end of April, we will extend the hours. We are anticipating the girls to start kidding the first week in March, so hopefully we will have goat milk at that time...... and maybe a few tomatoes! From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support!!!
