There’s a new kid in town! HA!
I kept noticing these nice, large and juicy-looking tomatoes that seemed to have started ripening, but then never quite kept going. But never-you-mind, I was getting plenty from the other plants, anyway. Finally, though I had to find out “what gives??”
Guess what? I forgot I had plopped a lemon-tomato into the ground! I got this armload of juicy, tangy, pure-yellow tomatoes. They pack a powerful punch of a taste, I tell you! They are yellow through and through with no “green gooey seedy” centers, which Bryan accuses the red tomato of holding. Oh-they are gooooood!
Sadly, today, I discovered the work of probably at least 2 hornworms chewing up my tomato plants. I have never had a hornworm since living here (6 years) and this is not good. Their natural enemy is the wasp and we seem to have plenty of them zooming around, but they did not do their job. So, when I was cutting back some stringy petunias (which you really must force yourself to do about this time each year for a spectacular late summer display) and a wasp charged me, I got out the spray and killed about 50 of them. Dave threw away their little village. Really-the one reason I let them live in the first place: hornworms! I am going in deep to find those fat tomato killers, who pretty much look like Heimlich from “A Bug’s Life,” (very rotund when having recently gorged on my tomato leaves) but are nothing more than satanic destroyers from hell. They shall die I tell you!
Meanwhile, back at the ranch…
I ran into Baby Averi at Target and she told me to go ahead and roast up a batch of her green chiles (Averi’s Anaheim greens). I picked a pile, along with some Macho Nacho Jalepenos and a couple of cucumbers. The chiles are slow roasting in the oven next to a pork butt and, baby, it is gonna be delish! Green Chile is quintessential Colorado!
I have this strange domestic, cooking thing happening. Somebody stop me…Jeanie
NOTE TO SELF: Kill the hornworms. Kill the hornworms. Kill the hornworms…Seek and destroy!

I do have to say those tomato’s look good! Nothing’s better then a home grown tomato. mmmmmm
I actually really liked the yellow tomatoes! We put them on our homemade pizza two nights ago and they were delish;o) But they did look like pineapple on the pizza and not tomatoes….;o) I can’t wait for green chile!
I just want to say that I havn’t been to Jeanies house to put horn worms on her tomatoes. Really I havn’t! ( BWAHAHAHAHA, that was my evil laugh) REALLY I HAVN’T! HEHEHEHE!
I found a use for all tose worms you’ll be pluckink off. Here’s the link http://www.olympus.net/dggordon/EatASample.htm I know how you like to cook!!!
OOPS typos!! Those and plucking. I’m such a moron.
I remember at our old house when we would have hornworms and we’d collect them and put them in a bucket…then dad would squash them. I remember though that in the time between getting them off the plants and dad killing them, I would grow attached and would be very sad when he came to take them to their death.
Meanwhile…that green chile was stinkin delicious!
