Friday tomato update

Black Sea Man
Black and red Boar
Black Krim
White Wonder

Well our tomatoes are starting to get ripe but they don't seem to be putting any new ones out. I hope they get a new spurt going. As you can see they are turning a little not so sure about the white wonder. How do we tell if its ripe? I guess we will pick when it feel a little soft. The Red and Black Boar is a little small it is supposed to be a salad tomato but it sure is pretty.

Nice looking tomatoes! I can't wait to harvest ripe ones from our garden!

Tomatoes drop their pollen when the temps get above approx 90F, that may be why they aren't making new ones. When the temps come down somewhat you may have new ones starting.

Do you have a favourite tomato sauce or salsa recipe?

Thanks we are getting ready for a taste test tomorrow.
The temps down here have been 90 plus for about 2 to 3 weeks with heat index in 100's. Humidity is like a sauna. But that is what we have to put up with to have 50 highs in Dec.
Wife makes the spaghetti sauce her mom makes and I don't think we have it on the blog. May have to take care of that. I do have a salsa recipe here on the blog. Go to the side where it has appetizers and click on that. It is a few recipes down the page.
