Harvest of Tomatillos on November 10

Tomatillos have been so great this year that next year I hope to plant some in the front yard! (These are from my back yard veggie garden.) Since colder weather has arrived, I decided to harvest all the more or less mature tomatillos to make a salsa and a salad. Two advantages of tomatillos over tomatoes are that tomatillos can tolerate some cold weather and they are not affected by blight.

They look sooo goood! I wonder if they'd make a good chutney.

Mark, I've added the tomatillos to a recipe for a vegan "Persian tomato cucumber" salad, and the result is a very fresh taste. Alas, the plant is deteriorating due to cold weather and way too much rain. Janice
