Part of the love of gardening is the enjoyment to be had from the fruits of your labour. When vegetables and fruit ripen and flowers and bushes bloom you can take the time to enjoy your hard work.
We have had a great crop of tomatoes this year but I only planted the tiny tomatoes, not those that you use for making sauce so I had to buy a box of tomatoes to make our sauce. I have made a batch of sauce from eight kilos of tomatoes. I usually cook the sauce in two kilo lots so it was four lots of cooking over a couple of days.
On this previous post you can check out the recipe I use.
