Tomatoes, squash

A basket full of tomatoes

I planted tomatoes in stages. These tomatoes were planted the earliest.

A month later, I planted a variety of Brandywine tomatoes.  They include yellow and black Brandywine tomato plants. There are green tomatoes on the vines but it will be awhile before they kick into high production.

A few weeks later, I planted six Amish Paste starter plants that looked half dead. These will be the third wave of tomatoes. By that time, I may morph into a tomato zombie. Cut me and I will bleed tomato juice.

As you can see we have all the full-sized tomatoes that we can use. I shared some with the neighbors and the rest of the cherries are going straight into the food dehydrator.

I’ve certainly gotten good use from the dehydrator. It’s running around the clock for days.

Big, sweet, yellow tomatoes are weighing in at about a pound each. I have never tasted a sweeter tomato.
