a few more tomatoes

Post by DavidBarkey »

We picked a few more tomatoes to process into sauces and juice . Not much this time . Only 8 milk cartons and 10 peach baskets full this time . Over ripe went to the birds . The chickens are now in a tomato coma . :rofl: Tuesday the outlaws are up to help process again . There is still enough still out there not ripe for a third run in a couple weeks again .

We didn't get a lot of tomatoes this year, but the plants have been doing well, in spite of the neglect they've been subjected to. We planted a mix of varieties: from Costco I got two packs of 2x Beefsteak, 2x Early girl, 2x Cherry. I really only wanted the beefsteak, but they were sold in a pack. Then some people were selling on the side of the road some plants and I got some. They were purple cherokee and one other type I don't remember. Out of all these, the beefsteak are to me the tastiest, period!

We grow different kinds for different reasons . Some like beefsteak for sandwiches , romas for pasta sauce , cherry for salads , few others I can't remember names for juices and salsas.

Every year I say I’m only going to grow beefsteaks since we use them the most. And every year we end up putting a bunch of different varieties. This year a friend gave a cherry tomato plant to try. It’s called Amish Paste. They were really good. Those are going back in next year!
