Tomato Harvest…even for a black thumb like me. Pickled tomatoes

Being gutsy back in May…I bought two tomato plants on a total whim.  Whim because plants don’t like me very much…maybe it’s because they realize that I tend to forget about them after lovingly planting them?  But guess what?  I think my tomato plants like me! They’ve been very good to me this season…

They’re still more green than red but it’s amazing how many tomatoes it’s pumpin’ out.  What to do with all the green tomatoes besides frying them (like the movie, Fried Green Tomatoes)?  Well – pickle them, of course.

So good that I may just have them at a restaurant that I will own someday~  Sweet, sour, salty with a good tangy crunch.  They’re awesome and so special as I certainly haven’t seen any in the market.  Couple jars picklin’ already in the fridge.  Let your imagination go wild and pickle away.
