Green Tomatoes

Harvesting Green TomatoesTonight we are getting our first really hard freeze. The temperature is going to be down in the 20’s for the next two nights. But you wouldn’t think it if you looked at our garden, it’s full of tomato flowers and sweet potato leaves. While prowling our garden this afternoon, we noticed many pretty baby green tomatoes. Since we didn’t want to lose them during the freeze, we decided to harvest them and make some green tomato salsa and green tomato bread.
