I make tacos on Sundays for lunch. Today I asked Julia to run downstairs to the basement and check on the tomatoes. I was hoping for one good one. Here's what she returned with:
Oh my stars! Can you believe how great they look?! In late November? The ones that look a little pink are the "Mortgage Lifter" variety, and that's their normal color. I was SO excited. I cut the 2 darker ones for lunch.
That's just as pretty as any tomato you'd pick in August. These were all picked when fully green, to avoid their being frozen. And see how nicely they've ripened, wrapped in newspaper and kept in the basement. I'm DEFINITELY doing this every year.
