180 chilles yesterday. And that's not all of them Very Happy Ristra stringing will be the job for one evening this week.

I decided it was time for my tomato plants to be cleared out.  The Rose de Berne, which for some unknown reason were slow starters, have been keeping me supplied but we've had some heavy frosts now so I took the remaining  green ones off.

Coincidentally, we watched one of my favourite films that I haven't seen for about 15 years - Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe and it got me wondering if fried green tomatoes were more than literally just that.  And so I discovered a new favourite thing, fat  slices of green tomato with a lovely, crunchy cornmeal coating with a dash of paprika  I've got a few more green toms in the fridge and then I will have to wait until next year to have some more.
I've learnt that fried green tomatoes are traditional in the southern US states when the unripe tomatoes are harvested and sold before the first autumn frost.

I was really pleased with my weekend harvest. The prized item was a proper bulb of Florence fennel, fat and squat and not the least bit bolted, and tender when braised. Lovely with Sunday roast chicken.

Also got some purple curly kale, which despite my fears is nice and not bitter. More lazy housewife beans, the last of them. Some good hot chilli, decent sized carrots and a plump red cabbage. Oh, and a celeriac, which I have to admit was not the most impressive size, but hopefully the flavour will be good.

Just winter salad leaves here - but they are very nice. And we are eating chillies that I dried from last year's harvests

All my fruit that came with me is in the ground now, apart from the apple tree grafts which I will pot on for a while. Hoping for some small fruit crops next year, starting with rhubarb.

Fried green tomatoes sound interesting - hopefully will have a chance to try that next season.

I LOVE that film, especially the bit at the end where she gets really annoyed in the car park!!
