Week: 24 & 25 Tomato Madness

When it rains it pours! And it’s raining tomatoes in my garden. The first that began to ripen were the cherry tomatoes.



Then came the grafted San Marzano and regular Roma tomatoes. The grafted San Marzano tomatoes were said to be beefsteak in size but still have the rich taste of a Roma.  I grew both varieties from seedlings and both by sight and taste, I cannot tell the difference.  They’re equally delicious.

Since the tomato supply is never ending I decided to can these tomatoes in the same way I did last year, pureed. Read all about how to can tomatoes here. I’m hoping to maybe can some salsa. Though it’s much more time consuming than pureeing tomatoes in a food processor. If you’ve got any good recipes feel free to share!


You’ll never guess what else just popped up in my garden…green beans! (and more tomatoes) I can’t wait to munch on these. Maybe I’ll even freeze some!


I leave you with a picture of Pepper chilling on the couch….See you next time!
