Yesterday's Tomatoes...

Home Grown & Vine-Ripened

We got a late start on our tomatoes this year but they're coming on strong now. These were all started from seed by Peggy, and the varieties shown are Super Sweet 100, Yellow Pear, and Early Girl. We have several other varieties too including a couple of heirlooms, Black Krim, and Cherokee Purple, which should be ripening very soon.

It's starting to cool off here now but the tomatoes are all in the greenhouse and should be fine, at least through September.

The beautiful weaving under the bowl of tomatoes is one of a pair of chenille placemats woven for us by our friend Judyl (see Santa Barbara trip here) on her loom.

We are heading out for a trip to Colorado and so all the luscious tomatoes that I have not had time to roast are sitting on the vine. We also have lovely peppers. Why we schedule lengthy travel this time of year is beyond me! Our black krim was very good.
