Slow Ripening

Well, this is not the summer for rapidly ripening tomatoes.  Even the plants in the hoophouse are taking forever to turn red (or orange, depending on the variety).  On the one hand, it's good because its nice to not have to worry about a massive glut of fruit ripening all at once.  However, its tedious to wait on three or four fruits to be joined by a dozen friends, so you finally have enough to do anything with them.  I don't even have enough ripe to start the dehydrator.  It doesn't look like the weather this week will be helpful at all.  It's supposed to be overcast and/or rainy all week long.  Definitely not helpful for tomatoes to ripen. 

Tomatoes.  An exercise in patience, by any name.
