first tomato dinner 2011

Ah tomatoes 2011. Another interesting season. After last year’s crazy canning compensation (for 2009 tomato blight bust) we toned it down. And planted only about 15 plants. But another year another trouble. This year the plants look AMAZING. The fruits on them are AMAZING too. The biggest most unbelievably huge tomatoes we’ve ever grown.

So what’s the problem you ask?? Well, they’re late. We had our first tomato dinner well into August, which is unusual. And the crazy heat wave this year might have impacted the ripening of some of them. Green shoulders that kind of thing. But the biggest problem this year–animals. Sigh. Over half the crop–I reach down through the leaves to the ripe tomato, and UGH–it’s half eaten. Sigh. I throw it over the fence. Chickens love that. I do not!!
