good job!
you can also just bag em whole and toss them in the freezer if you have the room and no time to process. when thawed, the skins slip right off.

I actually managed to harvest some tomatoes this year. The catch is somehow I ended up with a bunch of cherry tomato plants and a few romas. The plants are looking ragged with the late season heat and some windy days of insufficient water. I'm heading out on a long leave next week so I picked what I could and canned 6 pints (ok I bought a bag of damaged goods tomatoes from the health food store to top up). There was no way I was going to take the effort to remove skins and seeds or even cut up all those tiny things so I just blitzed them in the blender and cooked down to about half volume. I think it worked out ok.

No pictures since I reckon you know what jars of tomato sauce look like

 
I do but since you're Down Under - do the lids screw on the other way?

Thank you! Funny that it's only the romas, and not the Early and Pink Girls I planted.

Great info. I knew I could count on you.

So, can anyone tell me what's going on with my romas? Not the splits; I know that's from the recent copious rain. The weird green splotches, uneven ripening.

 So I ate a couple of the sweet 1000s that had turned nice and red last night. They pretty much fell off the vine when I picked them. They tasted good, but were a little hard/crunchy. 

Is this because they were the first ones off?  Should I let them sit on the counter for a few days to soften? 

 
possibly

some of those were bred to be firmer because cracking/splitting was a problem
