Tomato season

I cooked all those yellow tomatoes (yesterday's photo) down into sauce on Wednesday. This morning I will put the sauce through the food mill and then start reducing it into paste. As you can see from today's photo, there are still a lot of red tomatoes in the garden. We're planning to have two (or four) of the best looking ones for lunch today, stuffed with tuna salad. That should be refreshing on this hot day.

The garden is kind of a mess this time of year, but there's a lot of good eats in there!

Speaking of hot days, Wednesday was the hottest of the week, so far. Today should be a little less hot, and then the weekend is expected to feel downright chilly. Our order of firewood arrived yesterday afternoon and was dumped in a corner of the driveway. We'll probably start the process of stacking it once the temperatures cool down. Tomorrow we get our delivery of fuel oil for the winter.


  1. I’m sure you’re looking forward to the cooler weather. My cousin ate her TWO home grown tomatoes.

  2. I'm waiting for a photo of the potimarrons. One of my favorite winter squashes, but seldom found in our markets.

  3. Tuna salad is great with tomatoes.

  4. You will feel so contented this Winter with all the preparations you are doing now - love that feeling!

  5. mitch, it's much more comfortable this morning.

    judy, I got a chuckle out that, too!

    sheila, it's coming! I picked one yesterday.

    evelyn, it was delicious!

    sillygirl, yes!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
