Gardening Rewards

After another long absence, I am happy to be back on my little blog to share some pictures of one of my favorite times of year….Tomato Time!!

What is better than a garden fresh tomato?  Not much, I would argue.  Of all the crops we grow in our vegetable garden, the tomato is a top contender for the most rewarding to harvest and feast on.

Our garden got off to a late start this year because of all the rain and cool temperatures this spring.  I was out in the garden yesterday doing some cleanup when I spotted some ripe tomatoes buried deep in the overgrown tomato plants.   The varieties shown here are Celebrity, Lemon Boy, and Sweet 100 cherry tomatoes.

The cherry tomatoes did not last long sitting out on the counter and we enjoyed the rest of the tomatoes today for lunch.  This simple Caprese salad is just sliced tomatoes with olive oil and balsamic vinegar drizzled over the top, some fresh mozzarella pearls, fresh basil, and fresh ground pepper and salt for seasoning.  “Delizioso!”

As summer winds down, I hope to get caught up with some posts on what has been happening around here on the farm.  It seems challenging to find the time to sit down at the computer when there is so much work to be done outside!
