I have been harvesting the tomatoes. The early girls are bountiful and freaking delicious. The heirloom are rather funky to look at but they taste wonderful, and the little orange tomato-lemons are sweet and tender. My favorite though, are the teardrop shaped yellow tomatoes. I intended to put them into salads, but instead I just eat them straight.
The harvest isn’t as big this year as last. I’m blaming the weather. I branched out more this year and tried new varieties, so it could be that I chose lower-producing plants this year also.
The tomatoes from last year’s fall harvest went into the freezer, so at some point we will be making homemade chili. Or spaghetti sauce. Something like that.
These early girls went straight to the salad bowl. Regular salad with the fresh Parmesan, green leaf lettuce and Caesar dressing. Croutons when I remember to buy them. And tomatoes!
We didn’t JUST have salad for dinner. To go with it, I made a basil cream sauce and chicken.
Is it just me or is tomatoes spelled funny? Every time I type that, I think “toma-TOES!”
