Seeing red

Despite the challenges this year has posed with all the rainstorms and weird temperature extremes, the garden is still hitting that period when it produces enmasse. I'm harvesting a basket full of produce almost daily. Usually I get a handful of beans, about ten cucumbers, several peppers, and gobs of tomatoes. Because my tomato plants are in rough shape (from blight and being toppled over so many times), I have been picking the tomatoes as soon as they turn the slightest bit red and letting them ripen in the windowsill. So this morning I made canned diced tomatoes with the ones that were ready to go, but I still have a bowl full of almost ripe tomatoes as well as a windowsill packed with still ripening ones. I'm seeing red!
