A Peck of Tomatoes (or so)

One of the joys of living in the Pacific Northwest - it's October and the long cold and wet season is beginning right on cue. Seriously.

So, it's a good thing I suppose that we decided to harvest our tomatoes, green or not, last weekend. We tried hanging on through part of October last year and just lost a lot of them to a wet rot. This year, we have the joy of figuring out what to do with this:

Don't let the red bowl fool you. Most of the tomatoes you can't see are still green.
That's not even all of them. We have approximately 10.5 pounds of mostly green tomatoes that we'll be experimenting with today. Our plan so far is as follows:

L to R: Chutney, Sauce, Salsa, Fried Green Tomatoes, Brine

With any luck, we'll find lots of great things to do with green tomatoes since it looks like our climate will give us lots of them for years to come.

Wish us luck!
