Tomatillo in the House

My son was home from college two summers ago and we did a little cooking together. He had a recipe for tomatillo sauce and it was fabulous. I have wanted to try my luck at growing my own tamatillos ever since tasting the wonderful sauce/salsa.

Due to the remodel, my garden was not ready at the beginning of summer for planting. This year is a very late start but I am hoping for sunny days and warm temps into the fall. With any luck, I will have a few tomatillos from the garden this year. Because tomatillo plants do not self pollinate, two plants are a must. I have two green tomatillos and one which will bear purple fruit.
