Twelve Hours of Tomatoes in Two Minutes









This video is meant to be part of a much larger post about our adventures in canning tomatoes but that will just have to come later in the week as Ryan and I are just too excited to share this.

Here is a time lapse that Ryan and I made yesterday.  We are canning three bushels of tomatoes with Catherine, her little girl Penelope and Rebecca.  Hazel and the kittens pop in and out too; Mainly to eat the tomato skins.  We turned the camera on at 9:00 in the morning and took the last shot 12 hours later when the kitchen was almost clean.

We’re really quite pleased with it and would love it if you took a look and let us know what little detail caught your eye.

    What a spectacular video! You must have been exhausted at the end of the day. I love watching where your baby is – whether on your back or at your knees, and the surprise appearances of your dog made me smile :-)

    that was supercalifragilistic,etc … my eye kept landing on the dog flopping down to snooze over and over again 'Hey – so what's happening? … ZzzzZZz"

    I watched it twice! Spectacular video!

    My favorite parts had to be that you all were working hard all day while the dog napped, came to check things out for a bit, and went right back to sleep. Oh, how hard that life must be.

    Love the last shot!
