We take back what we said about growing tomatoes in Maine. After promising to help can for an overwhelmed neighbor, this beautiful basketful was just delivered filled with Amish paste, Rose de Berne, and Striped German tomatoes still warm from his garden. Late as it was, it’s turning out to be a good year for tomatoes after all.
After sorting, coring and peeling, about 15 pounds were turned into 13 pints of crushed tomatoes ready for our friend’s pantry.
Neighbors helping neighbors – what a special community you must live in. Enjoy your tomatoes but mostly your neighbors. :-)
It seemed like the good karma thing to do and, if there’s one thing I’ve learned through eating locally, it’s that we can’t do it alone!
They look fantastic ! Hope they taste as good as they look !
