    Definately green, mine are still at the flower stage.

    Cheers Mark

    Mark, most of mine are still at the flower stage, too, but this one plant is just rocking and rolling. It’s exciting!

    Ruth, my mouth’s already watering.

    Michelle, definitely can’t wait…

    I moved from Canada (garden zone 4) to Gozo (garden zone 10). The idea of eating or cooking with green tomatoes is a foreign concept to people here. My parents used to make a lot of green tomato chow before the as frost time approached.

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! My plants are covered with green tomatoes too, and each time I look at them, I dribble a little saliva. Oh, but the wait and anticipation IS fun.

    They’re beautiful.
    It’s fun to see their progression.
    My tomatoes are tiny still.

    Martin, when the frost arrived, I used TONS of green tomatoes in cooking — I love using them. I haven’t figured out yet when I’m going to fry some up this year, but at some point, I definitely will. Fried green tomatoes rule.

    Christina, I’m totally down with the saliva dribble…cannot WAIT for those bad boys to ripen…

    Chigiy, thanks — they appreciate the admiration! I keep doing little dances for them so they’ll ripen…I’m hoping that maybe by July 1 I can be eating them. We’ll see…

    I JUST planted the last of my tomatoes. I’m happy for you, but in a totally jealous, begrudging way.

    Green and lush and lovley without even a trace of red yet. Soon you’ll have more than you’ll know what to do with!

    Wow – I’m impressed – especially since I haven’t even planted my tomatoes yet. Lots of green tomato relish in my future, I’m predicting.

    Steven, it’s OK. Jealousy…I can take it. :-)

    Skeet, and when I do, I will be sure to tell everyone all about it!

    Kate, oh, get them in, get them in! You don’t want to miss the very best time of the year…

    Your website inspired me to try a hand at growing tomatoes. I’m starting from seed, a little late I know, but growing the early girl variety since harvest time is 52 days vs. 85 for other varieties. I’ll report back if anything comes of it! And of course, you’ll see pictures on my blog.

    Nirmala, I’ve heard great things about that variety — I hope you get some good tomatoes! Definitely report back.

    Green Tomatoes for Green Thumb Sunday – a very well chosen subject and photograph. I hope my tomatoes do as well as yours.

    Sally, do you not have tomatoes growing because you put them in late? Or because you didn’t put them in at all this year?

    Gardenmomma, you have no idea how excited I am. I cannot wait.
