Where's Cindi?

Mr. Clay snapped this picture of me in the garden this morningWhat's that?? ...You say, you can't see me in there? How's this?Need me to zoom in a little closer? I am not squatting or kneeling; some of the tomatoes are taller than me now. I was really stretching my neck to see above them. So far only a handful of ripe tomatoes. But...

this week I harvested 16 pounds of anaheim chiles. This is what they looked like before roasting:

Then that much roasted down to this:

And then after peeling, deseeding and stemming, it bagged up to be this much (16 pounds reduced to 8 pounds)...and off to the freezer they went...

(shown pictured in snack baggies and sandwich baggies; later transferred to 5 qt sized bags)
Well all of them, except one baggie, that will be used to make 'Cheater's Chile Rellenos'. Complete recipe with pics on my next post.

Until then

Holly cow, I've never seen tomatoes this tall, when we grew them they were half that size :(
