The grandkidlets were here for a sleep-over Sunday night.
Ms. C. picked her basket, brother Mr. C.
& I picked the ones you see on the counter just this morning!!!!!
We have at least this many still out there on the vines, too
My husband's golfing buddy gave him some heirloom
tomato seeds last year & we had a bumper crop, just
like this one. We then saved some of those seeds &
repeated the process this year.
I'm pretty sure we started them around March in
peat pots in the sunroom.
I am cooking some down to make sauce for spaghetti,
also roasting a BIG pan of them ...best recipe I EVER found
(Slow Roasted Tomatoes from Wives with Knives)
& getting ready to put some into
stuffed green peppers (which we also grew).
We've been eating the cherry tomatoes like candy...they are SO sweet!
This is one day's harvest from just 2 plants on the deck.
I love them for breakfast on those new Bagel Thins, by Thomas.
Only 110 calories & I use low-fat garden veggie cream cheese.
Excuse me while I get back to the stove.
Looks like I'll be in the kitchen for the rest of the week.
Sure wish I could give each of my visitors a fresh,
homegrown Ohio tomato!!
