Oh we're in it here in Chicago. Our tomato plants loved the heat and the rain. We have an abundant crop of plums and black cherry tomatoes. We've made salsa and we've baked tomatoes slowly in olive oil and parmesan. These baked tomatoes are soooo good on a piece of toast.....or a bagel.
Not that I can chew those things now, but before the gum graft I enjoyed them.
There is just nothing that takes the place of a tomato from your own garden or a friend's. We know the store bought pale in comparison. Almost to the point of being a different food.
What is your favorite recipe with homegrown tomatoes? Just the title is fine, we'll go after you if it sounds interesting and we cant come close on google searches...
Today involves a brief car trip to visit friends, and kitten free knitting. Little beloved Beatles loves to chew on my yarn as I am knitting with it... it is a good thing he's is such a beloved Beatle...
