When we thought we had picked the last tomatoes, these sun gold vines proved us wrong. Today we changed over some of the vegetable plots to winter peas and greens. It was time to pull up these sun gold vines and they were still producing fruit in November!
Sun gold tomatoes are serpents and don’t ever seem to want to die off, until we yank them out of the ground. They’re hearty and happy in Southern California weather. But it was time to say good by to the vines in this particular plot for now. We’ll see them again in Spring.
The ripe tomatoes are like sweet candy and we made some spicy pickled green tomatoes with the green ones. The recipe will be posted on the cooking site later.
