It's beginning to look a lot like...tomatoes?


Our dry, slow-to-get-cold fall has resulted in a major bonus...cherry tomatoes that are still s-s-s-lowly ripening. Today I see the beginnings of the end...frost damaged tips on the vines. But I've picked bunches of green tomatoes and will see what happens...if they ripen at all they'll be at least as good as any at the store! Homegrown tomatoes for Christmas???!

I'm drooling... and a little jealous! :)

Wonderful!!! When I have green tomatoes I put them in a bowl with a ripe banana, cover it all with a clean tea towel and very soon the tomatoes turn red and are ready for you to enjoy them.

Cool! We are still having cherry and grape tomatoes in our salads, which I picked green and ripened in the house. Small green tomatoes seem to keep better and longer than the big ones for me.

Kim...you might think I'm crazy but I'm jealous of your snow! At least for a short while at this time of year!
Yolanda...thanks...I immediately went and popped a banana in the bowl and covered it up!
Connie...I'm hoping it works for me too!

The photograph is marvellous, very intelligent, and the corner of reception ideal, the children's hands is combined splendidly with colours of clothes.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
