I was sort of worried they would stay green forever, but my tomatoes are finally turning! It's only a few of them, and they are still far from red, but I'm excited nonetheless. Now, what am I going to do with dozens of tomatoes?? I considered trying to can a bunch of sauce, but then realized two things: (1) I don't really know how to make tomato sauce, and (2) I'm scared of botulism. So, I'm going to try making sun dried tomatoes instead (why not, since I love them on everything....) Now I just have to decide whether I'm going to get ambitious and make them outside (very romantic, but probably a pain in the butt and a bad idea when there are 3 dogs running around our backyard), make them in the oven, or make them in my parents dehydrator....

A recent decision by the Board of Immigration Appeals outrageously denies rights to immigrants under arrest. The decision "held that noncitizens need not be informed of their right to counsel or warned that their statements can be used against them until after they have been placed in formal deportation proceedings." source.
