Gotta buy potatoes...

mulberryknobDecember 16, 2012

because we've just eaten the last of the ones we dug last July. They were starting to get a bit shriveled anyway and I've pulled sprouts off them at least 3 times. They still tasted better than any I can buy.

We just ate the last tomato that I picked green over 2 months ago as well. It was a Big Mama, a Roma type but bigger. I won't be buying tomatoes though because I have plenty of frozen and dried tomatoes this year. I took Dawn's advice about drying tomatoes, selecting cherry types and cutting them in half. Then I just half dried them and threw them into the freezer. And now I actually have homegrown tomatoes and homegrown lettuce in the same bowl. Yay!! That doesn't happen in the spring/summer when the lettuce is gone before the tomatoes get ripe. Thanks for the idea Dawn. We love them.

Considering the weather you had in 2012, I think it is pretty good that you got enough potatoes to last this long.

You're welcome, Dorothy. I'm glad the dried tomatoes worked out well for you. We're in salad heaven right now with the best winter crop of lettuce ever. I don't know how long it will last, so I'll sow new seeds for a spring crop in January.

Now, if only the weather will improve and some decent amounts of wet stuff will fall from the sky and we can start making serious plans for spring planting.
