The bigger one will go into BLTs tonight. The baby and I consumed the others on the spot. She cried when they were gone. I am so cruel to my children. The weather is calling for about 4 solid days of sun and heat, so hopefully there will be many more tomatoes in a few days!
What I have to figure out, however, is how you tell when a green tomato is ripe. I have a green zebra plant that is just loaded with tomatoes, but since they stay green, how do you know when they are ready? I picked one and took a bite, and they clearly aren't ready yet.
I think I'll give the carrots another week or so, but they're coming.
