Frozen tomatoes

The tomatoes in the greenhouse are green and growing nicely. Those outdoors are ready to set but mainly have yellow flowers showing where each fruit will appear. And in the kitchen the tomatoes of last year are regularly being turned into bowls of soup.

Today's photograph shows some of those frozen tomatoes, out of the freezer in a bowl, thawing out before being prepared for soup making. I always like to see them with the brightness of their shiny red skins subdued by the covering of frost, so I thought I'd photograph them before they're all gone and newly picked tomatoes take their place.
