January tomatoes

The window boxes did become casualties of all of the activity surrounding the wedding and honeymoon in the latter half of 2011 and as such got rather left to their own devices for the last quarter of the year.

However, one of the upsides of this is that with the mild winter all of the green tomatoes that were left on the tomato plants have been gradually turning red throughout December and January and every week or so we get another 15-20 red tomatoes to put into our dinner. My new favourite cookbook is Plenty by Yottam Ottolenghi and I used this lot in his Lentil and Aubergine recipe.

Very tasty indeed!


  1. Amy, I cannot even imagine harvesting tomatoes in a Michigan USA January garden - you are fortunate, indeed!

  2. Tomatoes ripening in January - Wow!

  3. I know! Who would have thought it! There's another batch ripening as we speak...
