Moving On Up Amazing Machinery


Yesterday, I posted a photo of a wise-ass tomato plant that decided to flaunt itself next to the tomato cannery. Today's photos are of trucked-in tomatoes being conveyed to their destiny inside the cannery. How the tomatoes go from that truck to the conveyor belt is beyond me.


I'm participating in Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday. The letter "M" is this week's featured letter.

    1. We happened to be walking by the cannery on Sunday when we noticed the tomatoes going up into the air. We were pretty excited. Hahaha. It's a small town. Doesn't take much for us to be thrilled.

    1. That's for sure. I'm constantly amazed by machines and systems and the folks who can make their imaginations real.

  5. This is a great post because it reminds me how amazing machinery really is. What is even more amazing is the brain power behind making these mechanical gizmos work in the first place. There is a lot that goes into our canned good. :)

    1. This is the start of their trip. Somewhere up there or in the building, they travel through water and get washed.
