All About that Tomato

23 Aug

Yep.  Today was a canning day.  I got eight pints of salsa and eleven pints of plain tomatoes.  Hopefully the whole cupboard full that I have ripening will wait until Wednesday for me to do something with them.

I work late tomorrow for freshman orientation, and Tuesday I have to go to the courthouse for the meeting to see whether or not I am granted the special use permit for my pumpkin patch in October.  Hopefully, I find time to take a picture of something and do a blog post.

    Hmm! What type of tomato do you grow? We have Early Girl, plus an heirloom called Black Krim, which have both gone into the jars for the winter….together. We enjoy mixing the flavors. We also have a cherry type this year called Indigo Blueberries! They’re actually dark blue on the plant, before they ripen! They’re beautiful and very tasty. – We don’t care for the Romas.

      I have four or five different kinds. I’m not even sure what all there is.
