Tomatoes

well.  First I had TEN pounds of tomatoes.

Ten pounds of Early Girls.  Also, there is one tomato in this bunch that I bought at the store.

So I turned it into a bunch of canned crushed tomatoes.  A little taste of summer waiting for me in the middle of winter.

Here is 8 1/2 pints from the ten pounds.  There was one more pint but it opened up in the water bath so it didn’t make it.

Then today I found these. . .

PLus about 5 pounds of ripe ones on my window sill in the kitchen not included in this photo.  The green ones are mostly not quite ripe yet, but they are an heirloom variety that will be ripe when green/yellow, so they’ll be ready soon.  I had to pick them today because the vine uprooted and tipped over despite being staked down in about a million places and being tied to two other structures.  The thing was just TOO HEAVY.  So, ideas anyone?  Fried green tomatoes are definitely on the menu this week.  Plus there’s this green tomato round up that looks promising I’ll let you know if I come up with any breakthroughs.
