Harvest Monday 10/29/12

This edition of harvest monday is last for the tomatoes. Last Saturday morning we got our killing frost. A couple weeks ago the cherry tomatoes got frosted enough to drop everything, but the big tomatoes were still hanging in. No more.
The last Cherokee Purples, still so good.

We had great luck with the San Marzano paste tomatoes this year. I turned this bunch into some more sauce for freezing. The cherry tomatoes sweeten the sauce and they make a nice combination.

Still a few green tomatoes left. If I baby them we might have a few around for Thanksgiving. 

Other than tomatoes, the fall garden is pretty pathetic. For whatever reason my fall lettuce didn't germinate. We have some kale, broccolini, and carrots left to pull. The garlic I planted a few weeks ago is up and it looks like every one of the cloves is going strong. I have never had garlic above the ground in the fall and will have to see how it affects the bulb size next spring.

Enjoy those last tomatoes. Mine are done for the season and it was not much of a tomato season for us this year. (sigh)
