still more garden tomatoes

Harvests, Tomatoes

I haven’t bought a tomato since the end of July! Looks like my 18 tomato plants produced 4 months of tomatoes. At two a night, that’s alot of tomatoes.

I’ve almost forgotten what the styrofoam grocery store tomatoes taste like. Last night we ate a nice yellow Brandywine that I picked green a month ago.

I am surprised at how many of my green tomatoes, picked October 13, have ripened. The box was full then of mostly green tomatoes. Only a dozen are still green. Though I was planning to transfer the tomatoes to smaller containers so they wouldn’t squish each other, and cover them with paper bags, I didn’t do either. I just stuck the boxful on the basement floor and brought the reddest ones upstairs when I needed more.
