Tomatoes Small And Large


I'm rather relieved that Jack's cherry tomato crop is now finished, the plants removed and something else planted in the bed. I turned this lot into three and a half jars of jam. Then there are the bigger tomatoes:

I cooked them up with onions, also from the garden, and dried herbs and then put them in plastic butter containers. I froze those and then tipped them out, which felt like making sand castles, so that I could use the containers again. 

These tomato plants are still bearing, but there will be a gap before the next crop is ready, so I will be glad to have these in the freezer. 


  1. Yum! I like your idea of freezing the tomato/onion combination in butter tubs. We had a nice crop of tomatoes this year, but I didn't can or freeze any of them. There was too much going on. What we couldn't eat, Dave shared with friends.

    1. As long as they don’t go to waste it’s all good. We give a lot away too.

  2. Phew, I'm happy to remain at the eating end 😉😄😜

  3. Just like being at the seaside, Jane!!! What a lovely crop to have in your freezer ready for the winter.

  4. Your are such a talent, I've done that once, saved the tomatoes with onions and spices. Makes an excellent starter for so many meals.

  5. Never thought of freezing them, what we could not eat we gave away
