Farewell Fresh Tomatoes

Washed tomatoes drying on racks.
The first thing I do with most produce is wash it and leave it to dry thoroughly. The tomatoes in front are Early Girls. Those I throw straight into the crockpot, after the Cherokee Purples start coming in. You haven’t tasted a tomato until you’ve tasted one of these heirlooms straight off the vine.

I do have one tomato vine in my garden right now. I always try to have fresh tomatoes for as long as possible. Once I still had a fresh tomato to slice for Thanksgiving, but I don’t think that will happen this year. I have a couple weeks left, maybe, of fresh Cherokee Purple tomatoes off the vine.

This Cherokee Purple tomato vine has taken over my kitchen garden box in late September.
