Daphne was showing Jack how it's done: Hold the bucket and toss the food in! Here's Jack trying the "toss the food" part. (I don't think he really got that peppers were food. He would much rather sit and eat cherry tomatoes from a few rows over.)
He did much better when it came to tomato time. He knew what that was about, since we already went tomato picking once. He did a lovely job of picking yummy red tomatoes and putting them into the bucket. I was really quite impressed -- not even a year old and he knows which tomatoes are the good ones! It goes to show that kids are frequently a lot more capable than we give them credit for.
With Jack's help, we picked 12 lbs of tomatoes. (And that's not mentioning the MOUNTAINS of tomatoes that Chris and Daphne picked!) We are going to cook and can some ketchup! Chris is really being my wilderness guide with all this preserving and canning of a non-jelly variety. It's very interesting! I think maybe I'll try some spaghetti sauce next. :)
