In a panic on the coldest day in May, ever, I think, I panicked, and harvested 4 not quite ripe Celebrity Tomatoes from the garden. I’m not sure what I feared from the 45 degree low forecasted, but I have been babying these tomatoes like never before, so I pulled them. Yesterday, I harvested a bunch of peppers, too – Joe Parker’s, Poblanos, Jalapenos, Shishitos, and a Bell.
Most store bought (and restaurant) tomatoes have no taste at all. I don’t even eat them at a restaurant, if they aren’t in season. They are worthless and without taste at all. Fortunately, it looks like a banner tomato season for me, thankfully, and knock on wood (or composite timbers) the peppers are rocking along as well. I have garlic drying on the patio, and already dried garden onions in several locations. The cilantro on the patio has bolted, but is still useable. I think I see a Salsa session coming on this weekend. Oh how I do love the first of the season salsa.
