Late Great Harvest
This year's growing season was not so great and harvesting shifted a bit late.
Here are the last of the Organic High Carotene Tomatoes, waiting patiently for me to get to them.
Let me tell ya, these are awesome tomatoes!
The seed packet said, " High Carotene has 2-3 times more beta-carotene than other varieties, making it a good source of vitamin A, an antioxidant important for healthy vision. The 2-3 inch, red globes with a hint of orange color are very meaty and flavorful. An excellent canning tomato with its higher acid content. These large indeterminate plants should be staked."
Ya think? The plants were six feet tall on a trellis!
The bounty here will be hopping into batches of salsa today, although I hate to see this little guy go.
Maybe I'll save him out for a Halloween decoration!
