Hooray for Pete's tomatoes

It's been the trickiest of seasons for our local tomato growers with too few hot days to ripen the fruit. But greenhouse producers have proven their value as summer came and went. We collected this weekend's tomatoes from Pete in Lilydale. "How's your season been?", we asked. "Well, a three degree night in Lilydale this week didn't help much," he said. "It stopped everything." At least you have tomatoes!

first frost on saturday and only three ripe tomatoes picked - looks like a LOT of green tomato chutney is on the books :)
