It almost impossible to believe that only a few days back, I was thinking, if my tomato crop has fallen prey to late blight attack. Then as one experienced gardener suggested on my blog, it turned out to be tomato rot (caused by over watering or lack of calcium during fruit set) and not late blight. Because late blight typically destroys the full crop and not 1 or 2 tomatoes.
Overall only 0.5 kg of my tomato crop suffered from the rot. But the harvest has been beyond my wildest imagination.
Since my first harvest till today, I have harvested almost 0.5 kg of tomatoes every second day. But now we have reached a point where our consumption (and sharing with friends) couldn’t keep pace with the production rate any more.
So, my wife came up with an idea to make puree out of the tomatoes and store it.
I instantly liked the idea and last weekend did an one time harvest of almost 80% of what was left on the plants.
Here is a picture of the harvest for your visual pleasure…
Just another view in a single container.
And this is what we got after making puree out of it. The puree tasted a bit like the tomato ketchup. Doesn’t it look yummy !!
In the meanwhile lots been happening in the background on remodelling the kitchen garden, visit to the organic mela at lalbagh and Half Marathon at KTM 09 last weekend. Will try keep the blog updated on all of that in future posts. Till then Happy Gardening!!
