save those tomatoes, cowboys are toast, c2rc1d

tomatoes are abundant in the garden right now
thanks to the warm weather have had
now if frost will just stay away for awhile
know its coming soon

try to keep the plants from freezing as long as possible
will use row cover  sheets  blankets if frost is coming as know
that a warm up will be coming right after a cool spell

when it looks like the big freeze is coming and cant
protect those tomatoes then will pick  them all at
one time

save them two ways
-especially the small sweet 100 or grape tomatoes-
my wife she will  place them in a freezer bag and
toss them in the freezer
my wife she uses them in soups  pasta and with any
recipe calling for tomatoes

the larger tomatoes are wrapped individually with newspapers
(another way to recycle) then are placed in a box and kept
in our kitchen closet or under a bed where it is dark and cool
one year we just wrapped them and threw them  in a
five gallon bucket
some will rotten but most turn into nice juicy tomatoes
that are great in salads

some years we have tomatoes through part of the winter
enjoy those maters

well the cowboys are toast now
romo has a fractured clavicle and will be out for awhile
would start working on developing a good backup say
maybe stephen mcgee-he could be another romo

sorry jerry no superbowl for you this year

chair to root canal last day
tomorrow is it
dang am ready
saw liitle boy in clinic that broke his front tooth off
this weekend       now he has to have a root canal
done before he gets it capped    
he said "whats a root canal?"
mom you tell him
