We ran out of green tomato chutney this year, so I'm not waiting until the end of the year. Just suppose there weren't any green tomatoes! Not even worth thinking about.

Besides which we have an early bumper crop of tomatoes. This is the earliest I have ever seen tomatoes of this size. The summer-like days are the reason.

But they are also the reason that spider mites and early blight have reared their ugly heads. Ironic that there are few leaf footed bugs this year!

Anyway the tomatoes are bubbling in the pot. Oh! The kitchen smells wonderful.

And this is the batch I made last week. No chance we will run out this year.
