This year, a member graciously volunteered to host two Tomato Days at her house in the city. While I ordinarily like to get out to the farm, a busy travel schedule, rapidly approaching due date, and sweltering heat wave made San Francisco a more attractive option. Noah and I literally spent the whole day canning - from 8:30 until 4:30 - and put up 22 quarts of sauce. Below are some shots of the day.
