I only have 7 tomato plants. Well, actually that’s a lie. I have a bunch. But I do only have 7 Roma tomato plants this year. This is the second crop, and more are coming. I know the horror stories of people trying to unload boatloads of summer zucchini but these are tomatoes. Did I mention that no one in our house eats tomatoes? Not raw anyway. So into the sauce pot they will go. They are a blessing, and I am truly thankful. )aare the deer who regularly patronize my summer buffet.). So it’s time to fire up the canner, peel, reduce… But I guarantee you that next January, from a frosty window, I’ll debate if 7 plants is really enough. And seeing those glistening jars on shelves in the deep of winter I’ll wonder, is 7 enough?
