That's a lot of tomatoes!
Why do you pick them so green? I always wait until they are more red than that.
Oh that's an easy question... We pick every so often and this is the first picking about 1/2 the 50 foot row. The green one are the ones that fell off the plant because of my big hands, get put in bucket along with the others. There are numerous recipes for green tomatoes. They won't go to waste.

We pick them turning because as you can see there's a fair number of them. The ones that are turning will ripen off the vines.

When my wife cans, she will pick out and can only the fully ripe ones. She canned up a double batch of mild garden salsa yesterday evening πŸ˜‹

Make sense?

My wife been working the table down. She makes the best garden salsa with all fresh from the garden veggies πŸ˜‹. She's canned multiple cases so far, if she rushed making it, it wouldn't be as good.
