the tomatoes grow!
Most of my crop is the Amish Paste variety, an indeterminate that produces over several weeks. I started picking a couple weeks ago and expect to be stuffing green ones in paper bags to ripen indoors in October.
I'm not weighing the harvest this year, nor am I even too concerned about putting by enough tomatoes to last until next summer. That was my goal when I planted the seedlings, and if it happens that would be great. But if not? Well, it's been kind of nice to not be slaving away in the garden every day this summer. Between the storm and my dental issues, it's been good to be less tied to food production.
Keep those comments coming … there's plenty of time for you and your knitting friends to get in on the Summer of Yarn Giveaway action. It's fine for you to enter if you're outside the U.S. and have the yarn shipped within the U.S., as one commenter hopes will happen for her.
I think I'll dig around in the yarn closet to see what looks good for next week's giveaway. There's a TON of cotton in there, and lots more wool. Some coned yarns (no ends to weave in!). Any requests?
