Great job! I'm about to start canning my Romas. I took the initiative to transplant about 50 volunteer tomatoes that sprang up around my cistern and in last year's tomato raised bed. I put them in the new asparagus bed on the south wall of the garage, and on the old cattle fencing left by the street. We've been eating cherries since mid-June. I've NEVER had tomatoes this early before. I've been watering almost every day, and we started eating beefsteaks about a week ago.
I'm not going to start canning this year until the temperatures abates some, and then only in the morning. We've had almost a month straight of over 100 degree heat indexes, and I think I'll keep over in the kitchen adding hot water to the mix! =b
