Tomatillos

p1010020.JPG

Our Tomatillos seem a bit late this year, possibly due to the heavy rains at the beginning of the season. We are finally getting a few for Jay’s famous Salsa Verde. . . Yum! They are super easy to grow and they are inside these beautiful green husks. They get just tall enough where they need some staking. We braced them with a similar solution to our tomatoes with trellis netting and bamboo stakes. They drop a ton of seeds and will grow like weeds the following season so I highly recommend using black landscape fabric if you would like to keep some order in your tomatillo patch. I have tomatillo weeds sneaking out from underneath the fabric.

    And by “famous Salsa Verde” she means our neighbors can’t get enough of it. 😉
