I found a big fistful of orangey-red tomatoes. They made good snacks, although weren’t as tasty as the sun-warmed-super-red tomatoes we enjoyed in September.
But what impressed me was how many green tomatoes survived on those naked vines through October. (Unfortunately, they taste gross. )
What is there to do with 1 pound (600 g) of green tomatoes?
Well C’s mum used to make Green Tomato Mincemeat .(Recipe in November post)
The fruit sat on our counter for a few days as I searched out the recipe… and wouldn’t you know a few more tomatoes turned red!
I ate them 🙂
Soon there weren’t enough green tomatoes to make the recipe…. so I continued with the experiment…
By the end of November & I’d had treats all month. It’s a wonder what those full spectrum fluorescent lights do!
I’d decided to hold out to see if the last couple turn color. Can you believe – – They did!! Granted, they were puny & a bit wrinkled – – but they turned red.
Well, I did eat a couple in mid December, but the last few went on top of the compost pile.
Maybe they’ll volunteer!
Maybe they’ll grow into even more productive tomatoes in the spring.!!
