tomatillos & jaltomatos

pretty purple through ‘n’ through

this year our purple tomatillos are actually ripening to purple! and our jaltomatos are spectacular: many are small marble sized, and delicious (well, K & I think so).  we’ve had enough that we’ve eaten tonnes fresh, and we’ve even dehydrated some as raisins for winter snacks.  don’t bother staking: like tomatillos, they prefer to sprawl, and do much better that way, but give ’em lots of room!  purple is K’s favourite colour, so getting to chow down on these babies right out of the garden as purple fruit is very exciting for her.
