thinking about tomatillos

Image borrowed from here.

The seed catalogues have started flooding into my mailbox recently, so I've started planning my garden for 2010. I will be doing some of the same things as last year, leaving out some, and trying a few new varieties. I don't need to order many new seeds actually, because I have extras left of most things from last year. One new thing I'm thinking about trying to grow is tomatillos. Maybe purple ones. They are so pretty and strange, and it would be wonderful to be able to make my own fresh salsa verde. Does anyone have any experience growing or cooking with tomatillos?


  1. I don't, but would love to try growing them myself! I'm not sure if they'd grow well here, because I think they're pretty sensitive to cold temperatures. Let me know if you find anything out! (I'll keep an eye on this post, too).

  2. Oh! I just found your site and am loving it! Hope you don't mind me adding it to my blogroll?
