Tomatoes in January
I picked the last of the green cherry tomatoes several weeks ago and have kept them under a tea towel with a banana thanks to a suggestion from Yolanda Elizabet . We've been slowly eating them as they ripen and while they may not be the best tomatoes ever they won the taste comparison contest the day care children did with some of our's and some from the store. And the banana really helps...when I took the original banana out (due to developing mold...yuck) the ripening slowed to a halt, picking up again when I put in a new one. Looks like we're coming to an end though...and it will be a while before we're picking new tomatoes.
