We did not miss the tomato harvest in our backyard and I am so happy about that! I have picked many many bowls full of cherry tomatoes, the funky shaped heirlooms are just ripening and the regular I can’t remember what kind of tomatoes are juuust getting ready to ripen.
So far I have made and canned a tomato confit and a lovely tomato conserve. Vim has made a lacto-fermented ketchup and plans on doing a few jars of pickled tomatoes, a relish and maybe a chutney as well. I froze a few large freezer bags full and cooked up a tomato gratin that Stitch and Boots sent to me. I recommend it as it was quite tasty.
I picked up a flat of dry farmed early girl tomatoes at the farmers market today and will can those tomorrow. I wish I had gotten two flats so maybe I will go get more next week.
We harvested all our zucchinis, carrots and green onions so that we could make way for some winter crops. Mostly I really need to get my lettuce and kale going again.
I’m going to try garlic, onions, shallots, brussel sprouts and cabbage this winter.
