Last week we picked about a hundredweight of tomatoes, most of which were green. Fortunately, the blight that was affecting most plots had only just reached ours last week, so Jamie decided to store them to see which ones were affected. Hardly any of them started to go the trademark brown colour, which left us with the dilemma of what to do with them all......
what's left of the tomatoes
Jamie started a pasta sauce, with tomatoes, old red wine (vinegar!), garlic and oil. We'll see later on whether it tastes nice.

Out of interest, the dark green squashes are still sitting by the side of the stove, waiting to be used. : D
They have got very hard skin and don't seem to have deteriorated yet, so hopefully we will still get time to do something cool with them. Even tempted to see if they will keep till Halloween??
Although that is a month's time.
