The Taste of Summer


We have been enjoying home-grown tomatoes for weeks, now.

This year I bought organic seedlings at our local markets in a few varieties and they have all grown so well.

The little yellow pear tomatoes are the sweetest.

As you can see below, we have a variety of sizes!


Every night with our dinner we have a tomato salad:

Diced tomatoes
Basil (also from the garden)
Crumbled Feta
drizzled with Olive Oil
(and sometimes Caramelized Balsamic Vinegar)

- yum!!!

We still have bowlfuls of tomatoes on the kitchen bench, and more on the bushes. When they end we won't be eating many tomatoes till next summer, as we don't enjoy shop-bought tomatoes at all!
