Frugal Friday ~Tomatoes

This weeks Frugal Friday is You Pick Tomatoes.

Where we live there are ALOT of tomato farms. After the workers go through and pick, they open the fields to the public. Even though these are fields that have already been picked there are BUNCHES of 'maters left. We can pick a big box for about $3-$5 . I like to get 3-4 boxes in the fall and do all my tomato canning at one time. This year I want to also make veggie soup and tomato soup. I hope to do this next week.

I would love to find a You Pick Tomatoes around me! We have a small garden and due to the weather my tomatoes didn't fare well so I missed out on canning. I'll do a little research and see if I can find one around here. Thanks for the tip! Ann'Re

I've been wanting to make tomato soup also. If you have a "tried and true" recipe, could you share?

I've never done the tomato soup before. I'll let you know what we come up with.
