And those are just some of the indeterminate tomatoes! Believe me, there are a lot I didn't photograph.
September 12, 2009: Tomatoes, Tomatoes, Tomatoes...When Will It Stop?
Honestly, I have tomatoes coming out of my ears. I've canned salsa, sauce, chili sauce, ketchup, juice, pasta sauce, pizza sauce. I've eaten tomato sandwiches, made tomato soup, put tomatoes in every salad. I've given tomatoes to neighbors and friends and family and strangers. I had to put boxes of canned tomato products under the bed when I ran out of room in the kitchen and laundry rooms. I have harvested over 300 pounds of tomatoes, and that's not counting a bunch I've given to my neighbor without weighing. Thank heavens I had to pull up 8 of my tomato plants, due to early blight. And it's not going to stop for at least another month. I'd bet there are easily another hundred pounds or more on the vines. If they don't freeze around October 15th, they will have to be uprooted to clean up the beds, then we'll be leaving for Arizona on the 18th.
