Actually, this may be only volume 1 of the Tomato Edition since we have tomatoes in abundance.
I might have gone a bit overboard with the cherry tomatoes.
There are three plants just like this. Luckily the dogs like them and are willing to help with the harvesting.
I just need to train them to give the tomatoes back after they pick them off the vines. Andy, the little red guy, seriously loves those tomatoes. Georgia is just giving in to peer pressure.
is no cherry tomato, but one of the heirlooms that weaved its way through the cherry tomato cages.
Speaking of escape artists: all the plants you see growing through the fence, here, are self-seeders from last year's tomatoes.
They aren't even growing in the fancy beds, but in a couple of inches of dirt between the beds and the fence. Tomatoes are much more hardy than I gave them credit for.
So now I need to figure out what to do with them all. This is what I got over the past couple of days. AFTER the photos above.
If you have a particularly good tomato sauce recipe that I can use for the Romas, please let me know! I'm overrun!
I hope your garden is flourishing and that you're enjoying the abundance of the summer. Bon appetit!
