Feeling Over-Blessed!!

Knowing that we would have a hard frost last night, and that we have more chilly nights in store these next few days, I sent the children out with grocery bags yesterday to strip the tomato vines.  I knew that there were a lot of tomatoes on them but I confess that I'm a bit overwhelmed.  OK, a LOT overwhelmed!!

My 3'x6' table.
Totally loaded!!!

These are just from the vines in the front garden.  There are still 10 or so vines beside our mobile home that we decided to put tarps over because the poor table just can't hold anymore and we don't know where else to put them. 

As fate would have it, I woke up this morning with a migraine and ended up going back to bed after I had made lunch for the family.  Amazingly, I slept all day.  I knew I needed to be busy doing something--anything--with my "overabundance" but I think the burden of it all really got to me.  I realize that I've just gotta suck it up and deal with it--but WOW!!  The green ones will hold out for a while but the red ones need to be dealt with right away.  I have two other bags of ripe ones that isn't pictured that need to be processed too.  I'll give it my best shot and we'll see how it goes.  :-)
