Tomatoes in January

This weekend I picked the last of my tomatoes planted this past fall. I've been harvesting ripe and delicious throughout December and all of January. Here is this week's harvest:

In the bowl are Park Whoppers, Solar Flare, Mortgage Lifter and Celebrity and Totem varieties. In December Early Girl and Better Boy varieties were harvested. Some of these were seeded in September of 2010 indoors and others like the Park Whopper and Solar Flare were bought from Home Depot as transplants. All were placed in the garden in their final pots early to mid October of last year. The plants are all done for now with just a few small green tomatoes left. Our December and January chills effectively killed off any chances of the plants overwintering and producing again so they will be removed from the garden this week in preparation for spring planting.

  1. Those look so delicious, I'm from Canada so I have a very short season to grow my own tomatoes.
