I PICKED THE REMAINING good-sized tomatoes from my collapsed trellis last evening. This was not a moment too soon. The fruit would have perished overnight as the temperature here plunged to 32 degrees. What are my plans for the last of these last “Love Apples?”
Tonight I’ll turn the few ripe ones into a Classic Tomato Pie. Meanwhile, I’ll place the green ones, single layer, into brown paper bags, where they will fully ripen in 2 week’s time. (This paper-bag-ripening-method has never failed me.) Then they’ll be good for Lazy Sunday Tomato Sauce, which I like to freeze for winter use.
I wonder — are you still harvesting tomatoes? Or has frost finished the vines off?
