Seeing Green

Last of the Tomatoes
This weekend, I went out and picked most of the green tomatoes that were still hanging on the vine. The weather is much colder now and I don't suspect that they would have lasted much longer unprotected. These will be left to ripen inside. I've started the slow process of ripping down my tomato plants but still have a ways to go. Anybody wanna come over and help? :)

Jonathan Carrots
On a side note, the winter carrots are coming along nicely. We decided to pick a few baby ones this morning to sample. They will steadily grow sweeter as the temperature drops.

Finally, I decided to opt out of this week's Harvest Monday, but will tally the numbers next week. I will, however, be admiring everyone else's.

  1. I guess you are seeing green, LOL! Knowing I was going to be leaving shortly, I tossed all of my green tomatoes as i ripped out the plants. I'm still getting enough for fresh eating from the few plants that are left. I have carrot envy. I'll be pulling one bed of mine (about for squares) on Friday, but I doubt there are many of edible size for us humans. The rabbit, however, will be well fed for a few weeks.

    Jonathan is growing so quickly!

  5. Boy Thomas, that's a lot of green tomatoes! I have quite a few out there too! I am going to make a batch of green tomato jelly...but, that will only use a few. Hopefully most will ripen inside. I won't be participating in Harvest Monday either. I spent the past few days canning and didn't take any pics.

    The little guy is a real cutie pie!

  6. That is a lot of tomatoes. I picked some of mine, but a lot went into the compost. Johnathan is so sweet!

  7. You are completely out of control with those tomatoes Thomas! And I was just thinking about a week ago that we needed another "Jonathan in his rubber boots" fix! But is he in his SOCKS? LOL too cute!

  9. I still need to rip out one of my dead tomatoes. Its not likely anytime soon since I've started in on putting the beds together. But it looks just terrible there all spindly and brown.

  11. That's a big crop - I've still got quite a lot of green tomatoes, but not as many as you. I'll be making more green tomato chutney though!

    We ate the last of the carrots - small but tasty, at the weekend and pulled the first of the leeks. I made a huge vat of leek and potato soup - scrummy!
