San Marzano tomatoes

This is a decent harvest, at least of green tomatoes.  There are lots more to harvest, but they're still relatively small.  This is Eastern Quebec, after all. I'll try to speed up ripening of the green ones before we head south, hoping to roast and freeze them for next winter.
