    Finally some tomatoes from the garden.

    I didn't get much out of my garden this year, just to much rain. Last week I noticed quite a few large green tomatoes and was hopeful that maybe the garden wouldn't be a lost cause after all. Now it is raining again. I slogged out to the garden in my boots and picked what I could salvage.

    I sliced them up , put on some mozzarella cheese, olive oil and fresh basil which seemed to be the only thing that really flourished this year. My son and I will eat ourselves silly. Hubby hates Basil.I'll leave his plain. Maybe make some fried green tomatoes later on in the week. tomatoes (800x600).jpgtomatoes and basil (800x600).jpg

    They look great Ruth. We have too many tomatoes right now, we are giving them away.
    Basil and tomato go hand in hand

    Sounds good Camper6 but I'll have to make it on gluten free bread for myself and that really is a sin, but my son will love it.

    This is what they serve at a restaurant that I used to frequent for meetings.

    It's a great appetizer for a party as well.

    Bruschetta is a really good appetizer and it can be served on gluten free bread
    I’m going to try and make some tomato sauce with mine.

    Our growing season is pretty much over...I pulled the last of our plants a few days ago. I had 3 big bushes of grape tomatoes, and probably harvested 2 or 3 hundred of them over the Summer....I like to keep a big bowl of them in the fridge, and snack on them throughout the day. We had a bumper crop of cantaloupe and cucumbers, and I wound up giving a bunch to the old folks home in town.

    Fresh tomatoes are my favorite summer treat. I live in an apartment now and have tried container gardening but haven't been very succesful with growing tomatoes so thank goodness for local farmers markets. When I was little, my grandfather had a huge garden. Grandma would cut up ripe tomatoes and sautee' in butter until tender and serve over buttered toast. I know, that's a lot of butter but it was so good. I still fix that as a comfort food now.
    I didn't say your perfume was too strong, I only said the canary was alive before you got here.
