Do We Have Tomatoes?

DO we have tomatoes? Do WE have tomatoes? Do we HAVE tomatoes? Do we have TOMATOES?
Oh yes, we do have tomatoes!  Despite what you may think the weather has thrown at us, our approximately 10,000 square foot tomato garden has produced a staggering amount of beautiful heirlooms for us.
a sample of some of the larger heirloom tomatoes we have, some of the Black from Tulas are as big as your face
 weighing in at 1.5 pounds, others are a good sandwich size like the Oxheart, then there's the fabulous flavours
 of the Tangerine Orange, the Blanche du Quebec and Thorburn's Terra Cotta, the pink Carletons,
the round red fruit of the Rideaus and Scotias and Stupice.

 ceylons looking like mini-pumpkins,
red and yellow pear, various reds like gardener's delight
and my favourite amethyst cream
looking as delicious as they taste.

some pretty crazy looking toms here, but so much flavour

various pastes for the sauces, San Marzano, Gilbertie,
Roma, Black Plum, Black Prince, Orange Banana,

ya, picked a few, just a few

picked a few more
fresh salsa supplied in low flat jars, easier for dipping

So far, we've made fresh salsa, almost a hundred jars of tomato sauce, roasted cherry tomatoes which we froze for future months and dehydrated dozens.  I'll be making more sauce today and starting on the salsa to be processed into jars for upcoming months.

The wake up temperature Saturday morning of 2C seems to have not bothered the plants out in the garden.  It looks like the week ahead will give us some warmer nights which means many many many more tomatoes to come.
