Tomato Harvest Has Begun

July 29, 2010

Looks like someone will be up to her ears in salsa this weekend!


A trip to the garden tonight yielded almost 7lbs of tomatoes, mostly Cherokee Purples. They have lots of bruises which will prevent me from canning them, but I’ve got a bunch of cilantro in the fridge and couple of hot peppers in the fridge and will whip up a nice batch of salsa instead. Some of the tomatillos are ready as well and will get incorporated.  I cannot wait!

    are they actual bruises? It looks like you might have some blossom end rot on those roma looking ones.

      You’re absolutely right, we have blossom end rot on our Amish Pastes. But I will just cut the ends off and use the rest!
