Yesterday I picked the last of the tomatoes, including the orange ones. Good thing I did! Last night we had our first hard frost. It was 27F. We had a very light frost earlier in the week at 31F, but that didn’t do any damage to the tomatoes and just nipped a few bean and squash leaves. Today I canned 7 more jars, with more to do tomorrow. We have now canned about 115 jars of tomatoes this year.
I think when the orange ones under the stove ripen, that I will try a new recipe–tomato preserves. The recipe is like a tomato jam. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
