Since it frosted hard enough to finish killing off their vines, I harvested my tomatoes yesterday.

Lots more of them had begun ripening this year than last year!

I should still have plenty for making more green tomato pickles, I should be able to tell if I like them enough to go ahead and do so as they may be cured long enough by mid October,,,right around my birthday, what a treat that will be to try!

Larry I tried green tomato relish this year for the first time and I loved it!! if the pickles are not to your liking give it a try:)

Andrea, What's the difference betwix a relish and a pickle. Over here relish to buy is twice the price of pickle. I guess its sounds more posh.
If you go onto the recipe forum and look up 'Mixed veg chutney' you can use that for green tomato 'chutney' 'pickle' or even 'relish'
