Most of the tomato plants have been pulled and are ripening inside the Extension offices. I hate tomatoes that ripen indoors. Oh, wait, it's not good to hate. I really, really, really don't prefer tomatoes that ripen indoors. Sooo not the same.
Bill says they beat the rubber tomatoes available in the supermarket come February, but honestly, truly, I beg to differ. The don't stay firm. It's like they go from green straight to mushy.
Maybe it's all in my head. Who wants to set up a blind taste test for me to see if I can spot the vine ripened fruit? And by vine ripened, I mean that vine should still be attached to roots, in the ground. Sigh.
Tomato season is just too dang short!
