Do you read The Amish Cook? Lovina wrote in her last column that they just finished eating tomatoes she had ripening on their back porch. Our local newspaper carries her column. I read that last night and was reminded about our tomatoes which is why I took the photo.
We have tomatoes from our garden ripening on the kitchen counter next to our Advent Candles. It is almost Christmas and we are still eating tomatoes from our garden. Four of them are ready to eat with one still getting there.
These tomatoes were all green when I brought them into the house. They ripen slowly but are worth the wait. Better than store tomatoes! I didn't do anything special. The green tomatoes started on a tray in our guest room simply because of space issues. I brought them into the kitchen when there were only 20 or so left. They are roma tomatoes.
Home grown tomatoes are on the menu for Christmas Eve Supper.
