Almost caught up on my work and chores so just sitting here dreaming of summer days gone by. The most tangible reminder of summer is the 'sundried' tomatoes from last year. They were a surprising success and I would recommend drying cherry tomatoes as a useful extra-garden-produce prepper activity. If they dont get totally dry (sun is not necessary its really more of an air drying process) they can be frozen. I harvested about a hundred pounds (wet weight) of sweet red cherry tomatoes from a row of 14 plants and this made about ten pounds of good quality dried tomatoes. I am about a third of the way through them.

...So, there's a lot less reason to ever buy any tomatoes from the store.
