After a slow start, the tomatoes are finishing the summer strong

Fresh picked tomatoes: (Front to back) Celebrity, Black Krim and Costaluto

The past couple of weeks were considerably cooler than the previous month which has kicked the tomatoes in high gear. This is the harvest from this morning, which is all from seed I collected last year (cheap!). Looks like we’ll have two or three more of these hauls before the end of September. If production keeps up, we may beat our record of 120 pints of tomato sauce we jarred around this time last year.

The tomatoes up front are a Celebrity / Heinz Processor tomato cross. The purplish ones in the middle are Black Krim. The large lobed ones in the back are Costaluto.

My weekend will consist of saucing and canning all of these for the coming winter.
