My Favorite Things ... Tomato Edition

I am some what of a tomato snob in that I like my tomatoes fresh. Therefore, I get my fill of tomatoes in the summer, and my tomatoes are finally coming in!

This is my first ripe tomato ...

which I promptly made this ...

I also love them on biscuits!

This is what my tomato plants started out like ...

And now they look like this ...

I think I may have planted too much in one spot. Who knew that you are suppose to pinch off the suckers? Well, I do now and will use that knowledge next year. As I was talking to my grandmother about my garden, I told her that next year will be better. She said the same, and I was so relieved that my grandmother is still working on perfecting her garden!

Romas are really coming in!

As well as my Better Boys!

So, I'm sure that when I start back to school, these beauties will be ready, and my learning how to can will be starting!

Do you think I can go to the local nursing home and find me a sweet older lady who can come and teach me?

We shall see!


  1. Tomatoes are my FAVORITE food! My grandfather sent me a ton of ripe tomatoes last month that I had to do something with quick so we had BLTs, homemade tomato soup, fresh salsa,... It was great:) {I think I'm a snob too about those things!}

  2. That is one thing Terry and I both agree on — we hate tomatoes. lol But everyone else on both sides of our families LOVE them. You and your green thumb are producing some great produce!


Thank you for visiting! We love hearing from you!
