    Twenty-twenty-twenty-four hours to go-o-o, I wanna be tomatoed
    Nothin' to do, no where to go-o-o, I wanna be tomatoed...

    Take me home, country roads

    You are all freaks. You, and those who comment.

    And yes, I'm a freak too. I'm allergic to tomatoes and eat them by the bushel. Peck. Bucket. Lots.


    Did Rabbitch call us all Tomatoes?? I thought so.
    Gave me a good laugh as I sit here all tomato because I have to wake up at the crack of tomato.
    And BTW? I believed Bill Clinton when he said he did not have tomatoes with that woman.


    First of all, Sandy, I think we need to define "tomatoes" and "with."

    And Norma, don't forget the Little Engine that Could: "I think I can tomatoes."


    the queen reference did it all (and i don't mean miss E!)


    Oh, NORma! Thank you for the morning laugh.


    Ah yes, the noble tomato...I searched all summer for a Folly food mill just to put up some tomato sauce.


    In a heap of tomatoes here, chortling,chuckling...
    Still tomatoed after all these years.....

    "There's only two things that money can't buy, and that's true love and home grown tomatoes." - Guy Clark, song writer

    My mother taught me 'open kettle' canning for tomatoes. Now they know it isn't safe, but I guess we survived all those jars.


    We have to have a canning talk. I like the idea, but am a little freaked out that I'll give my family botchulism. And we have an ample supply of cannable (that just sounds WRONG) stuff from our CSA. So far, I've made a bunch of pesto and frozen it in the jelly jars (which are freezer safe). I guess I'm a canning-wanna-be.


    Ha ha hah, awesome quotes!! Mmmmm.. 'matoes....


    Oh, Norma. I miss canning tomatoes so much, and I am so looking forward to being back in my own home during tomato season next year, for the first time since 2004. We are going to have canned tomatoes up the wazoo next year, guaranteed. In the meantime, can I come have spaghetti at your house this winter?

    gale (she shoots sheep shots)

    I am as stressed out as can be, I thought nothing could make me laugh. I was SO WRONG. Love ya Norma!


    Give me tomatoes or give me death!


    99 jars of tomatoes on the wall, 99 jars of tomatoes... you take one down, pass it around, 98 jars of tomatoes on the wall....

    hee hee love the quotes!


    to bad you aren't closer, i could drown you in tomatoes this year and i bet JoVE could help out as well... I feel a bit like Old Lady who lived in a shoe, she had so many tomatoes she didn't know what to do!


    Oh Lord, stuck in Tomato again.

    Equally classic, "Tomato In The Wind." *snfl*

    And I'll never forget the performance I saw of "Tomato" by Led Zeppelin...but, y'know how if you weren't stoned, that drum solo seemed to go on forever? It was even worse live.

    Kinda made you wish for a tomato to throw...


    Tomatoes are more important than knowledge--Einstein

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a tomato.--Jane Austen

    We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of tomatoes.--Declaration of Independence


    Norma, I have been roasting tomatoes lately. I have had quite a few grape tomatoes and have cut them in half, placed them in a baking dish, drizzled them with some olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt. Then into the oven they go -- around 400° for 30 minutes. Then I let them cool and scoop them into a freezer bag where they will stay until winter when they are used in soups and sauces.

    Just sayin --


    Reminder: Grey's Tomato is on tonight. Don't miss it.


    Have you read Portrait of the Artist as a Young Tomato? How about The Turn of the Lid?

    Grrls, do you think that you can
    Put tomatoes in a can
    You will find it positively fascinating...


    Have you seen that movie? How Stella Got Her Tomatoes Back...


    Hi, Those were the good old days canning tomatoes. They tasted better then they do now. Don't you agree.! ! !


    Quite the round up of tomatoes...
    While my tomato gently weeps...
    (Norma, I got in late last night, feeling just a tad broken and came back to 'catsup' on the comments and laughed, and snorted, til the tears were running down my face.. thank you so very much for this post and for everyone who left a comment... might just have saved my life..didn't feel nearly so broken) :^)

    What would The Tomato do?


    i can't get no..canning action...


    How do I love thee? Let me count your tomatoes.


    OK, I'm inspired to try canning. I got tomatoes, I got canning jars, I got theory... I need advice from a practitioner. Do you use something to acidify your tomatoes per USDA recommendations of vinegar, lemon juice, or citric acid? (I don't know where to find citric acid, in my supermarket, it's not with the pectin.)

    And not to be overlooked that classic, "The Tomato that ate Cleveland".
