Tomato Bottling

With a bumper crop from one of the school gardens, we needed to preserve them so they wouldn't go to waste. So with the help of Lou & Silvana (Ill need to check the spelling) we all gather to do some tomato sauce bottling the traditional Italian way. It was a great day despite the heat. (strong westerly blew all day until the southerly change hit just as were were about to leave.)
