Well the Fair has come and gone and now the work of harvest management begins in earnest. I was very pleased to take a first place in heirloom tomatoes this year with the Italian Sweets I grew from seed.
The Class of 2013
Blue Ribbon Heirloom Tomatoes
I made the first Tomato Tart of the season, and this morning I will run 10 pounds of cooked tomatoes through the food mill for canning later today as tomato juice. There is nothing quite so wonderful as a glass of tomato juice in the dead of winter to keep hope alive. I am roasting tomatoes every chance I get and keeping them in mason jars in the fridge.
