Summer in the Midwest sure has been cool and wet. Not good for tomato plants. It was looking like we weren't even going to have tomatoes this year. But, the heat machine finally kicked in and look at what I spotted in the garden...
Lots and lots of tomatoes! I left for vacation and returned to lots of little beauties!
I guess vacation time is garden growing time. Kind of like a watched pot that never boils...
So, let's talk tomato...
While I still need to wait a bit for these tomatoes to turn green, unless I make fried green tomatoes, I was thinking that you might also have some tomatoes coming or you have tons of tomatoes coming out your ears! In either case, you are going to need some recipes where tomatoes take center stage...check out this round up.
|Baked Parmesan Tomatoes|
|Pesto and Goat Cheese Crostini|
|Tiny Tomato Pie Tartlets|
|Roasted Tomato and Bacon Cornbread|

What's hiding in your garden?
On a side note, my garden was full of weeds that I let get out of hand and a little furry black creature ran right next to my foot! I was so horrified, I almost didn't even stay to find out that there were tomatoes in there. Glad I did! What was the little, furry black creature? Oh my gosh! I jumped up so fast and up onto the little step stool I was sitting on...I have no idea! Screaming and fear clouded my vision. Mouse? Vole? Furry snake? Ok, it wasn't a snake. If I see it again, I'll let you know.
Celebrate the little things that make life sweet,
BTW-let me know what you make with tomatoes!
