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.


  1. 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 :-)

  2. 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"

  3. I loved watching the bushels of tomatoes magically empty! If only all my chores could
    be done that way! Fab video!

  4. the last shot is adorable - you two are so cute! I wish my husband helped in my canning adventures!

  5. Love this!! Thank you so much for sharing. Wish I had that much energy lol

  6. Awesome video ~ so much fun to watch! You have an adorable family, dog included :)

  7. 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!
