|October harvest: |
Mortgage Lifter, Snow White, Pineapple tomatoes
Carbon and San Marzano tomatoes
October was punctuated by tomatoes. Lots and lots of tomatoes. Even after a decade in California, it still feels wrong that tomatoes are coming in fresh off the vines when it should be fall already. In fact, here we are in November and I still have tomatoes ready for harvest. I have to remind myself that the reason the harvest continues is that it didn't start until the standard season was practically over. There was opportunity for more harvesting during October, but I got too busy to do the MKG justice. I hope to remedy that in November while the garden still seems to think it's July.
