Roma Tomato Harvest

Even though the plants look terrible, the Roma tomatoes have yielded well. I picked several colanders full, and dried them in the oven. I froze the dried tomatoes and we’ll have them throughout the winter. I froze at least a dozen bags with at least a dozen halves per bag. This was one of the few bright spots in the garden this year.

The denser planting of the Romas worked out well and I’ll continue that in future years, even though the plants were almost dead as I harvested the tomatoes. The damp cloudy weather did all of the tomatoes in.
