Tomato, mato, bo-bato

You know the rest. We're eating a lot of tomatoes right now. From the garden. In sauce, on sandwiches, in salads, on pizzas. And they're delicious. We've got round reds and roma reds, and we've got beautiful round yellows. Except that those turn more orange-y than yellow. Still, they're meaty-good!

Yellow tomatoes from the garden.

There is still a rather large crop left on the plants that's just about ready to pick and be processed into sauce. We'll probably tackle that this weekend.

We're still working, little by little, on the re-arranging of the house. Ken is cleaning and re-varnishing old furniture like end tables and plant stands. Yesterday I cooked. I made creamed corn from some of our fresh garden corn and an apple tart. Both turned out very good. In fact, Thursday's lunch included potatoes, corn, tomatoes, and apples all from the garden.

It won't be long before it's time to start pulling up plants and preparing the beds for winter.

  2. Those tomatoes look lovely. There is something more enticing about the orange ones. I sometimes think they taste better than the red ones. Wonder if it's an illusion created by the sunny colour.
