Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Tomatoes


Back from vacation.  Lots of tomatoes to pick - two big baskets full.


There is a mix of roma, Juliette, Cherokee purple, Goldie, Tasti Lee and some other varieties.


Most of these went into three big bags, sealed and frozen for winter use to make sauce.
There are more to be picked in the days ahead plus the tomato plants which are rapidly dying need to be pulled.

Those sure are pretty tomatoes! I'm still only getting one or two every few days so still waiting for my big harvest.

Such an abundance of tomatoes! Ours are still in the trickle-in phase.

Too bad about the plants dying, but it looks like you did get tomatoes!

I expect there will be lots of delicious tomato based dishes this winter.

Lovely tomatoes. Too bad they are fading quickly. Hopefully you will get all you need for the winter though.

Lovely tomatoes - it's always a bit sad when the plants start to decline, although last year I had such a glut, it was sort of a relief as well. As with the other comments, mine haven't started to really flow yet this year. Hopefully it won't be too much longer.
