Tomato Harvest in NJ

Just thought you all might enjoy some shots of my babies here in central NJ. I picked 415 tomatoes so far from my 24 plants, not bad considering they only get about 4-5 hours of sun per day.

The ones on the vine are Rio Grande paste tomatoes - large, meaty, productive, and very pretty, but unfortunately also hard and rather bland. They're out for the future - will probably replace with Opalkas next year.

The basket has 180 of my pretty babies getting ready for conversion into my fabulous salsa. That's Better Boys and Rio Grande on the top, and Romas are underneath. After skimming off half a dozen Better Boys for slicing, this batch yielded 21 pints. I love August!
