A successful vegetable garden requires a lot of work over a period of months, and also a lot of waiting. Then all of a sudden you feel overwhelmed with all that the garden has given you. Look at all these tomatoes!
Above is only a small part of the tomatoes we've picked so far. We've already eaten quite a few, including as part of a pasta dish we had for lunch yesterday, with eggplant, zucchini, bell peppers, onion, and garlic. Walt picked a lot more tomatoes yesterday morning. See below.
Friday morning, I was out looking around in our 2016 vegetable garden and noticed the cluster of tomatoes in the next photo.
All these — and many more — will ripen over the coming weeks. We'll be making tomato sauce for freezing or canning; oven-dried tomatoes; tomates confites... and eating tomatoes in salads daily. No complaints. I need to look back through the blog and see what other tomato ideas I can find from past summers.
