Pretty cool the last couple of days, but the tomatoes are really coming in now. On our survey, tomatoes were the top vegetable grown by gardeners in our plots. Nothing can really beat the taste of a tomato that is ripened on the vine and in peak flavor.
The Dane County Farmer's Market is sponsoring a series of tomato preservation workshops. If you have more tomatoes than you can eat fresh, this is an opportunity to learn about canning, freezing and dehydrating tomatoes for later use. The classes start tonight (canning demonstration) at 6 pm at Feed Kitchens, 1219 Sherman Avenue. There is a fee for the classes but refreshments and supplies are provided and you can learn from experts. Later classes are Sept. 8 with hands-on canning and Sept. 15 for freezing and dehydrating.
