The tomato harvest has picked up with over 12 pounds this week. We used some to make a ketchup and barbecue sauce recipe, but it made less than a quart so I didn't can it. I'm still waiting for more of an onslaught so I can make salsa and sauce. The tomatillos are collecting on the counter and I need to make a salsa with them. However, they are the tiny pineapple tomatillos so I think it will just make one batch of fresh salsa. The cherry tomatoes were beginning to build up on the counter too so I dried some in the oven this week. Then they went in the freezer for later. I harvested over three pounds of cherry tomatoes this week.
We collected all the green zebra that were ripe and cooked them down with some onion and basil to make a tomato sauce. The zebra tomato sauce came out a pale green color with a bright flavor.Other larger harvests include 3 pounds of yukon gold potatoes we dug up this week to compliment some meals.
I picked some of my pole beans but found I'd let some of them go to long and they were tough. It is hard to find them among all the different vines as they are wrapped around my sunflower plants.
Total this week: 28.68 pounds
Total this year: 157.4 pounds
