Below is picture of the green tomatoes we salvaged from clearing out the tomato plant. It's amazing how many tomatoes one can get from a single plant. Mary Ann would really like me to make some green tomato chutney. So if I have the time this week I may try a new recipe.
I don't think I've mentioned that I tried growing a peanut plant this year. We found one at Oakland Nursery this spring and planted it in the raised bed. If it is successful I will grow more next year. I've read that when the leaves turn yellow in the fall you should carefully dig it up and shake any loose soil free. Then it should hang to dry for two weeks, pick off the peanuts, clean, and let them dry for another two weeks. The leaves are just starting to turn and some peanuts are peeking out of the ground. I hope that this time next week they will be ready to pull up.
