Tomatillos in the Garden ~ Sparks, Nevada

I love verde sauce…much more than rojo. So I planted four tomatillo plants that I bought at the UNCE Master Gardener plant sale in May. Three of the four took off, so I plucked the runt out of the garden. Good thing too as those tomatillos are getting pretty dang big!

They’ve been loaded with flowers…


Bees are loving ’em…like they’re loving all my plants this year.

And now lookie! I’ve green lanterns hanging from my plants. It’s amazing how excited I get over my garden…but we won’t go there.

Can’t wait for those husks to contain fat tomatillos!

Do you have a favorite tomatillo recipe? I’ll be googling to look for some recipes to try, especially ones for canning.
