Tomato Wine

Many gardeners look at rows of growing vegetables or fruits and imagine a harvest feast.  My husband, R, gazes at the ripe apples or plump tomatoes and thinks: alcohol!
After several years of learning from our apple wine, R has ventured into the area of tomato wine.  He recycled old wine bottles into a batch of about 15 last week.

I'm not wild about the taste, but I also do not care for Bloody Marys or V8.  The reaction from family and friends has been mixed, but the wine is still young. It may mature into something that doesn't taste like a Brillo pad. (Did I type that??? Oops.)
Now, he's eyeing up the blueberries...
