We Have Tomatoes in Late September!

Posted on | September 22, 2009 | 5 Comments

Tomatoes I Gathered From My Garden

A few weeks ago I was feeling better down about my tomatoes. My plants were really healthy and big but all the tomatoes were still green. I was afraid they wouldn’t have time to ripen before the frost. Thanks to everyone who left comments and suggestions on my blog post. I trimmed back all the unnecessary leaves and branches. The plants look a little homely but the trick seems to be working. I collected a whole bowl of tomatoes on Sunday. I still have a lot more tomatoes on the vines but the next few days are suppose to warm. I would love to can a few jars so I can savor their goodness in the middle of winter. Do you know a good recipe? Above and below my tomatoes from my first harvest.

    You are so lucky! The last couple of years we have just barely gotten tomatoes (since we moved to WYO) before they froze, so I think I need to start them inside next year. There is nothing better than homegrown tomatoes, so I’m feeling really jealous right now!

    Lucky for you they lasted as long as they did! Enjoy them!!! Eat lots of Caprese salads with fresh mozzerella! I just pulled mine out today..every tomato that grew on the vine turned black within days. Late blight begone!!

    The pictures look beautiful! that camera must be doing wonders!

    I think there are simple tomato canning recipes online. I haven’t tried to save them for the winter, with the exception of making a spicy tomato preserve. (I had some really cute jars and wanted to use them!)
