For a short time in the fall, if you get your lettuce seed planted early enough and have indeterminate tomato varieties still hanging on bravely, you can have bursting-with-flavor, vine-ripened tomatoes plus tender, sweet early lettuce leaves and thinnings from your garden in your dinner salad at the same time. Bliss.
yum! Just ate a tomato from the fridge this weekend, it was still holding on to its juicy sweetness.
Plenty more where that came from…until the first frost.
