If the contents of your compost bowl look this good, you know late summer has truly arrived. We’re still struggling with no main tomato crop in the southern Willamette Valley, but they’re starting to trickle in, and the next few days promise to have a little heat. I managed to get 6 pints of very hot jalapeño and fresh cayenne pepper salsa out of my own tomatoes, mostly Saucey and Black Prince. I’ll probably do another batch with purchased tomatoes, should that opportunity arrive before school starts at the end of the month. I’m completely out of tomato sauce and regular tomatoes, so I would really like to make this happen!
