First Tomatoes of the Season


Our first ripe tomatoes arrived yesterday (July 22). We are growing yellow pear tomatoes (my favorite), cherry tomatoes, and Big Boys this year. We continue to harvest cucumbers every day. Pictured are "bush pickles". These are delicious smaller cucumbers. They're doing better this year than our other cucumbers.

Try a simple salad with chopped garden cucumbers and sliced tomatoes, along with the salad dressing recipe below!

You look so cute in this picture! And now I'm going to need to remember to grow parsley next year.

Basil is usually the big herb in my garden. I make huge batches of pesto to freeze for the winter.

Ouch! said...

Nice...we are still awaiting the first tomatoes to ripen in our garden.
