This is the dial on the pressure canner. See that black zone-- also know as the blow-up-all-over-the-kitchen zone? That is where the pressure got to as I zoned out, watching a "Stargate" episode that I had already seen!
This is the pressure canner.
Luckily, I got to the canner before the kitchen was decorated in tomato goo.And look at this. (They really don't show as impressive as they were.) These tomatoes are between 4 1/2 and 5 inches across and are fat too--that part doesn't show. Phil is a marvelous gardener, don't you think?And then, just for your viewing pleasure, this is a spot on the front of the stove that defies cleaning. I think it's hair dye. I hope this photo makes your feel wonderful about your own kitchen cleaning abilities. Okay, hopefully I'm finished with the tomato photos unless I actually do blow things to smithereens on Monday and then I will surely post those photos. And cry a lot.
