Tomato picking

This is all the green tomatoes that I picked two weekends ago and I made a bunch of stuff like:

Green Tomato Bread,

Green Tomato Pickle Relish and  Sweet Green Tomato Pickles

And Green Tomato Dill Pickles

Total count for the one day, 6 quarts of Dilled pickles, 5 and 3/4 pints of relish, 4 pints of sweet pickles and 2 loaves of the green tomato bread.

But that is nothing compared to what is coming up this weekend. As I've finally pulled all the rest of the tomatoes this week due to predicted snow here.  I now have green tomatoes all over the place. That bucket was only 3/4 full and the bottom layer was filled with the very last of the squash.  This week I have filled that bucket completely full three times. Check this out.

I have green tomatoes on the washer.
 Green tomatoes in boxes.
 And on shelves,
 and on more shelves,
and in the kitchen with the mostly red ones that I finally got. 

So this weekend I'm going to be making more green tomato something. and I"m going to try and let some ripen so I'll have red ones to can also. My canning this weekend will have to be in between wood hauling loads so I'm not sure how much I'll really get done. Maybe that will give the green ones more time to ripen.
