|Ron and Bill's fresh tomatoes|
The tomatoes are on!
Each year I buy a couple of six packs of tomatoes at my favorite local garden spot, Peppers in Milton. I buy one six pack of small tomatoes and one six pack of regular size slicing tomatoes.
Then I plant the individual plants around my flower beds in my backyard. I also have oregano, parsley, rosemary, sage, chives, dill, and fresh basil plants planted throughout my raised beds are the far end of our backyard and the flower beds next to the house.
This is the best time of the year, harvesting our own tomatoes and herbs. I love it! Nothing like your own herbs and veggies. Bill loves the tomatoes. He cuts them up in a bowl and puts a couple of dollops of mayonnaise and that is his lunch. I use the tomatoes, basil, and oregano in my fresh pasta salad (which I'll post the recipe in a future post).
We couldn't grow tomatoes or many other vegetables at our home in Pennsylvania because of the deer. We don't have that problem here. So instead of growing salads for the local deer population we're growing the good stuff for ourselves.
Summertime, I love it!
