Today's view

It is a very wet and windy day. Dark, too.On a brighter note, I finally preserved some tomatoes yesterday. And two jars of tomatillos.This season has been very weird. Spring was late to start (one month late, to be precise), and the summer was very mild (no complaints here!). We had good rains and all our water tanks are overflowing!

The tomato plants are laden with green fruit, but just not ripening up. Now with this wintery (very cold and windy) weather, I don't expect to pick much more. Yesterday, I went to pick some tomatoes and most of them had split and the millipedes, slaters, snails & slugs had moved in. What a revolting sight! I threw them over the fence and the chooks and sheep loved the food falling from the sky.

Us too. I now will pick all the green ones and see what I can do with them.
Fried green tomatos anyone.

Very short warm weather this year. LOL.What a sight is must be for the chooks and sheeps seeing food falling from the sky. Yesterday was raining food and today is raining water for them.

Green tomato chutney sounds good.
