First time for me, too. Tomatillos have been volunteering out here since the first time I purposefully planted them and we’ve always gotten a couple of good bowls of salsa out of them. This year’s crop was prolific in terms of quantity, but defective in quality.

That’s sad because it’s always fun to pair a good tomato year with a good tomatillo year.

  1. Is your garden generally not flourishing as usual this year? If so…I need to pass it on to my son in Texas. He’s in his first year of trying to establish a garden and having major “unsuccesses” which he attributes to poor soil. Maybe there’s another contributing factor? Not sure what it could be but maybe it’s just a bad year for some reason – reason has yet to be determined!

    1. Our big problem this year is the rain-heat & sunny days–rain. It’s a recipe for fungus.
