Show me the way to tomatillo

Show me the way to tomatillo
every night I've been hugging my pillow
and dreaming dreams of tomatillo


 and little bees who work for me 


The Sock's worries that the tomatillos weren't getting fertilized appear to have been unfounded.

We grew lots on the lottie a couple of years ago. They looked very pretty but then I didn't really know what to do with them!

The Bedsock thinks he is going to cook with them describing them as like a 'fruity' green tomato! We shall see.

I really wish I hadn't got 'Show me the way to tomatillo' stuck in my head.

Ha ha! The Bedsock just read your comment and is grumbling "she should have sent them to me" "green salsa" blah blah

Fried green tomatoes! Yummy. I plant them at the back of my greenhouse and let them rampage towards the front along the roof.

Now I shall be singing that awful song every time I go to inspect them...

I love tomatillos. If you want authentic salsa it's the plant to grow. I'm growing the green variety this year, but prefer the one with purple fruit - alas I couldn't lay my hands on any seeds this year.

Ooo, its so pretty, I shall wait to hear reports of how the bedsock cooks them ... and what they taste like.

I now also have the song running around my head,

also growing green tomatilloes this year

also have that song going round in my head.

You make a salsa with a big handful of chopped fresh coriander, garlic (chopped and raw) and lots of tomatilloes. Delicious with very nearly anything. And they look dead pretty in the greenhouse too :D
