Dear Family & Friends
With over 200 tomato plants I've planted in Spring, it's no surprise that we are having one too many tomatoes this year. There's a lesson to be learned: Do less next year!! Chest freezer is now full. Every cooked meal seems to have tomato, girls snack on them all day long, chickens do too...yet there's still buckets for friends...
My brain cells come up with all sorts of tomato meal menu. I've even come up with an amazing pesto fried rice with miniature tomato as part of our meal one day....Oh...they're good:)
|These miniature tomatoes are smaller than a normal size marble!|
But despite that, there's no better tomato than what you can have from the garden.We even discovered one very strange looking tomato... they're all huddled together like a bunch of bananas! Now, we don't see those kinds in the supermarket!!!
|We ate this strange thing and they were super sweet!!|
I just hope that my little family will remain grateful for our everyday tomato meals, for there's more to come... Afterall, I must admit that after a while, our greedy chickens are now becoming choosy with their tomato choices....no, no, no....they put their beaks up whenever we throw them nice sweet cherry tomatoes....they prefer the big juicy beefy tomato instead!! Oh well, they can have that too:)
Hope you're enjoying your tomatoes in season, or are encouraged to grow them in pots or in the garden, for they are such easy plant and the reward is great!
