It's time to make the Salsa! Unfortunately I ended up buying tomatoes because I was impatient to start canning. I have been a little spoiled in years past by just picking what I needed that I got a little sticker shock at the Farmer's Market. Is is just me or are local tomatoes a little pricey? I saw a vendor selling homegrown tomatoes for $1.50 each. One tomato at $1.50? That seems outrageous. A customer questioned if it was a mis-label and walked away and the vendor yelled "just because you can find one cheaper doesn't mean it will be better". I didn't pay that much but I will wait till ours are ready before I can some more. I think I got a little carried away with the Jalapeno peppers though--it is a little HOT!
