In the spring when I planted my garden I thought I had 2 grape tomato plants...
no...no I bought 4 plants, they are taller than me and are mass producing.
They are super sweet and soon I will be looking like a grape tomato.I planted a variety of tomatoes, probably 2 dozen plants.
yellow and red stripped ones - super sweet
burgundy ones - super sweet
and bush tomatoes...huge and delicious
well I have so many tomatoes, I'm giving them to friends and
DH is taking them into the office.
Today, I made seven jars of pasta sauce.
It was simmering on the stove all morning.
We had some for dinner last night...it was yummy.
The garden produced lots of cucumbers too but they are coming to an end.
I planted 2 varieties...eating ones and some for canning.
My pepper did not do well this year, the worst year I've had for peppers.
I planted bell peppers... green, red, yellow and orange ones.
This is yesterdays tomato pickings...a heaping half peck container...
and every couple of days I get this many again.
Oh how...I wish I could take them to Canada, we are planning a trip soon.
This year the tomatoes are so sweet, must be the hot summer weather.
Most of these tomatoes will be made into pasta sauce.
I love fresh salsa and I'll be making a big batch next week.
