You've Been Replaced

My favorite milk glass windowsill vases have been kicked to the side. They had such a good run early in the summer, holding herbs and flowers from our yard. 

Instead, today we visited our community garden plots and HELLO LOVELIES.

Our first two Brandywine tomatoes are nearly ripe and we found nearly 2 pounds of San Marzanos ready and waiting. 
The windowsill is crammed today with these fruits. Yes, a tomato is a fruit.
Tomorrow I'll find a small batch recipe for tomato sauce for the Marzanos. Food in Jars is typically a resource for that. This will be my first rodeo making sauce to can, so if anyone has tips, please share!
