Tomatos Galore!

After two weeks of vacation (more on that to come!), the state of our tomato plants makes it pretty obvious what’s for dinner. And lunch. And, anyone want tomatoes and eggs? Anyone?

This is just the first bundle

We’ve been munching on tomatoes and feta (add some basil), spicy salsa and slurping up tomato soup.

  1. I know the feeling of feast and famine. This year, my grapes were the biggest challenge. Millions of them! I took it easy on the tomatoes this season. I only planted two so the harvest has been perfectly manageable for me and I’m not even getting burned out this year! But, good lord, those grapes!!
