Green Tomatoes~

After the Summer Drought and onslaught of Grasshoppers… I posted this photo of my ‘Lone-Tomato Plant’.  fall garden planted 003

You can see the tripod support holding up that little green sprig? That is my tomato plant that survived the summer drought…it lived off dish water! {smile}

 

  Here it is today.  We haven’t had any hard frost yet.  cold frames- tomatoes- fall gardens 003

We’re having 60° days right now and 40 ° nights.  This weekend is predicted to be in the lower 80’s.  I’m watching the weather pretty closely. If they say we’re going to have a hard frost – I’ll have to get out there and get all those Green tomatoes off there and get them put up.

This Tomato bush is loaded with green tomatoes! 

I recently bought a book titled ‘Country Wisdom and Know How’ …it has several recipes for green tomatoes.  I can’t wait. 

I’ve never  EVEN eaten a Fried Green Tomato’…so I’m looking forward to that and some bread and Green Salsa (not together, of course) ;I’ll have enough to can and I’ll be able to try several recipes over the winter months.  I don’t mind firing up the oven in the winter.  In fact I do my best cooking when it’s cold out.

That is about the prettiest tomato bush I've ever seen. I once made mincemeat with green tomatos-it was deliscious!

That tomato looks amazing now! I'd never tried fried green tomatoes until last summer. It was certainly interesting.

I am so jealous of your nice weather. It's been freezing here for a few weeks. I lost my tomatoes and peppers this week when the Hubby forgot to close my hoop house. Oh well, that gives me more time to start quilting. I am anxious to see what you do with your tomatoes. Have a great week.

I'm a bit envious of your fall garden!! We've been below zero and had 30" of snow already :)
