Fall Harvest Tomato Salad

We seem to have shorter growing seasons for tomatoes lately. My tomato plants just got started going in August and now the plants are loaded with green beauties that may not ripen. Today we had no sun all day today with the threat of rain.

Did you know you can keep the tomato harvest going through the fall and winter. Yup! Once the weather cools off and before a frost, pull up the tomato plant, brush the dirt from the roots and take it a shed or garage. Hang it upside down in the corner away from direct light allowing for air circulation. Harvest tomatoes as they ripen. Enjoy garden ripe tomatoes longer.

Here's a simple recipe I threw together with my garden harvest of orange and red tomatoes with a green tomato variety added from a neighbor's garden.
