Tomato Sauce and a Laundry Line

Yesterday, in an effort to use up some tomatoes and not have to freeze them, I canned tomato sauce for the first time.  Out of maybe 20 pounds, I now have 7 pints and 2 1/2 pints of tomato sauce.  Yum!

 We moved into our new house without a dryer.  One is coming, eventually, but in the meantime, I've made do with a drying rack.  Unfortunately (and fortunately), the fall winds are arriving, and small things (like cloth napkins) flutter off the line as soon as they are mostly dry.  Also, we had a brief bout with a stomach bug, and there's no good way to wash multiple sets of bedding and set them out to dry without a new laundry line.

James, so kindly, dug the hole for a new laundry line.  I'm looking forward to using it tomorrow!

Until next time, remember, this is not paradise.  It's Purgatory Ranch.
