Using up the last of the home-grown tomatoes

Obviously the allotment’s not ready to grow anything in yet, but I’ve been trying to grow various veg in pots and containers in my front yard for the past couple of years. Most successful has been broccoli (a couple of years ago) and this year, tomatoes were a surprise success.

Just before it got frosty, I picked all the remaining tomatoes. There were absolutely loads, but hardly any of them had ripened so I ripened them indoors by putting them in a paper bag with a banana which worked really well.

Today I used up the very last of the harvest, and I ate the few tiny remaining tomatoes on bruschetta with a bit of goats’ cheese. It’s a bit sad that there will be no more home-grown veg for a few months at least, but I have uncovered some horseradish growing on the allotment which I’ll try digging up for some horseradish mash soon.
