Produce On The Kitchen Counter


There seems to have been an influx recently of cherry tomatoes.  Mostly red ones but a few of the chocolate ones too.  They are out numbering the roma tomatoes and a few others my mom sent home with me recently.  I think these are destined to be diced and "put up" in the freezer.

  5. I thought about you guys last night as we watched the weater report noting that your area was getting hammered!! Glad the rain barrels are full, and without any damage to your surroundings!! My tomatos have finally gone crazy too!! Hee Haw-now some are going in the freezer (the ones that I can save from my crazy pico-de-gallo-makin' hubby!! Wonderful stuff!!

  6. That is something I need to try. Growing fresh tomatoes seem like it would be a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing....Julian

  7. I'm jealous! I've had no fresh cherry tomatoes yet! ('course, I didn't plant any either...)

    They almost are too pretty to chop up. I like looking at them on the counter.

    Yes, yes, yes!

    I feel so good when I use them later.

    The red has a sharper taste when you first bite into it but they are very similar overall. I like the different shapes. The red ones are little drops and the chocolate ones are perfect spheres.

    We didn't blow away although some places had damage and some places had twice as much rain as us. Crazy.
    Nice problem you have with a pico de gallo makin' hubby. Sounds like a great treat. I'm freezing tons of tomatoes to stretch their use into winter.

    Tomatoes aren't to hard to grow either. They taste so much better than any you'll ever buy in a store.

    Well...you have to help the process a long a bit and put in a plant! :-) Hope you have a friend or farmers market where you can get some.
