I'll be having that tomorrow as we lost power from a downed tree about half way through cooking the pork and kraut. Nasty wind here today. Wound up going out to eat.

Dang, fresh tomatoes sound really good!
Today I burned off and scraped the grill, been needin some cleanin for a while. The kids said they were showin up because they heard I was firing up the grill, so then I started a new pile of charcoal and cooked up a half-dozen kc strips, added to that salad, taters, and corn on the cob for supper. Turned out good. Spent the early afternoon lookin at some garden tractor prospects, ended up bringing home another pair of 23x8.50x12 tires and wheels. Always use some of these somewhere. No tractors tho. Got to watch the KC Chiefs win again too. Yahoo!

Can you clue me in on this process? We had a bumper crop of tomatoes this fall, gave lots away just so they wouldn't spoil. Curious to see what you did and see how long they last.

Was a secret o how I kept the 6 plants alive,( don't tell anyone) built a cover and got about a month past last frost before a freeze got me. But I striped the Green ones and wrapped in newspaper and put them in a cardboard bow under the bed (only lost 4 out of 30) still have enough for a few more days. So we push the ripening for 4-6 weeks.
