Raining again today. This month has been very good for rain and I think the rain now is back to normal. The new fall plants are all up and growing well. Today I picked more tomatoes to go with the few I picked on Saturday and we had about 20 pounds to can. We have just put 7 quarts of the marinata sauce in the canner and when that is done we will put in 1 more quart of sauce and 5 quarts of tomato juice.
