As you can see I had a bumper tomato crop again this week. I came within a few ounces of beating my weekly harvest record. I pulled out four of my tomato plants and picked any of the green tomatoes that had any chance at all of ripening. I didn't add them into the harvest totals. I'll weigh them if and when they turn ripe.
And I finally went over 100lbs of tomatoes for the year. And 200lbs of produce. Whoohoo! Last year's harvest was just over 70lbs of tomatoes and I have six healthy plants still left with tons of tomatoes still on them, one doing OK, and one trying to die, but I can't pull it up since it keeps putting out so many yummy tomatoes. This is surely the banner year for tomatoes in New England. I don't remember ever having such a good year. (My apologies to the west coast. I know how you feel since we went through that last year).
On the preserving front this week I've canned 26 pints of various salsas, tomato sauce, and tomato juice.
