Alien Encounters of the Tomato Kind!
In the last few weeks the weather has turned cold. I have been busy in the garden, stripping the tomatoes off the vines and sorting them out. We had an amazing amount considering the summer had been quite dismal. I'm letting the green ones ripen on the window sill and have oven-roasted a ton of cherry tomatoes, infused with chilli oil. These went into the freezer to use in soups and winter dishes.
It looks like an alien infiltrated our greenhouse and left it's mark on some of the beefsteak tomatoes. I'm sure they would win best in show for freaky vegetables!

We had a good crop of potatoes and the chillies weren't so bad either. I have a nice supply of apaches to keep me going for a good couple of months. The others, poblanos, jalapenos, big banana, and bell peppers will be used within the next few weeks.
