Tomatoes for Thanksgiving ........

image002.jpg

We finally pulled up all the tomato vines today. They were full of little green tomatoes, but only a few were getting ripe. I did manage to get several fresh garden tomatoes for our Thanksgiving dinner. Don't they look yummy? One year I saved some of the green tomatoes, wrapped them in newspaper and stored them in a cool place. That year we had garden tomatoes for Christmas. They weren't as good as summer tomatoes, but were better than store bought tomatoes in the winter.

My brother will be back in Virginia tomorrow night. I've had cat sitting duty this week while he was gone. We'll have turkey and all the side dishes Thanksgiving Day. There will only be three of us, so we will have to do a lot of eating. I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!

I am still getting tomatoes despite frostk the little petite ones. I am so spoiled I haven't bought tomoatoes or sweet peppers yet, and am out except for frozen peppers I put back for cooking

With a friend, we are going to the Senior Center as they need the money.

Happy Thanksgiving!

My tomatoes are long gone and the garden turned over for the season, so it's so nice to know someone is still enjoying fresh garden tomatoes! And for Thanksgiving, that is a treat.

Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Those tomatoes are amazing! Your Thanksgiving dinners sound wonderful - we have to wait until Christmas for Turkey and all the rest of it!

I'm envious! Like you say, garden tomatoes ripened slowly are much better than store bought...any time of the year.
