What started as this……
Has become this…..
And just in case you want a closer look at the little guys…..
Our garden continues to go crazy with all sorts of things, but the gems of the moment are the tomatoes. I have been picking a huge bowl full every other day. So far, we’ve kept up (and given plenty to friends).
I have only one problem plant and it’s not actually the plant that is the problem, but the squirrels that dig it. What is it about san marzano tomatoes that squirrels like so much? I have now lost three precious tomatoes to those dang squirrels. I may have to let Lily, the squirrel monster, out more often.
Doesn’t she look viscous?
Okay, enough about my adorable dog.
Back to tomatoes!
Here are the top five ways we like tomatoes in our house:
1. BLT’s. Need I say more? This year’s version was a BSCAT (bacon, swiss chard, avocado, tomato).
2. Caprese Salad. Our basil is out of control and fresh mozzarella is always on sale this time of year. You have no choice but to eat this yummy mix. (you can also make this into a great pasta salad)
3. Sliced with a sprinkle of salt.
5. Like an apple.
Tell us what you are doing with your tomatoes – I may need to branch out if my crop persists.
