Glenn, with all those low acid veggies I think water bath canning isn't safe.  Hate to see you get botulism.     I'm thinking your soup mix needs pressure canning.   

Please check it out, maybe with extension or your local health department... Or even the ball blue book.
Del I've been making this for 30 plus years besides eating my mom's who does it  the same way with me issues. What's botulism anyway???

Like getting a giant botox shot all through your whole body...

We can tomatoes and salsa using the open kettle method. I guess we like to live dangerously. I mentioned getting a pressure canner once and the warden was not the least bit interested.

Tomatoes in water bath ok.  Salsa depends on how much other ingredients.

I liked pressure canning since it was faster than water bath and didn't heat the kitchen up so much.
