That's what my husband called these plants tonight.
These are two Roma tomato plants, which were in 4 inch pots when we bought them.
"Those are big tomato plants," you may be thinking, "but I don't see many tomatoes."
Oh, they're there.
Behind leaves, inside the cages, we keep finding more.
And that's after picking all of these.
From two plants, people.
Quite a few eggplants, too.
It is satisfying to harvest food that you have grown.
There's a connection,
a deeper sense of God's provision.
I truly enjoy it.
And boy, are we experiencing a tomato harvest right now!
We've shared them with neighbors and friends.
We've made salsa and pasta sauce.
Caprese sandwiches, too.
I'm planning on freezing a bunch of them.
I've got good recipes for tomato/cucumber salad and tomato pie
and I came across this recipe tonight, too.
It's from one of my favorite cookbooks--
"Giada's Family Dinners" by Giada DeLaurentiis.
I'll be making that this weekend.
But I have a feeling I'll still have lots of these guys to deal with, so...
if you live nearby and want some Romas, let me know.
And if you have any tomato (or eggplant) recipes that you love,
please share them with me! :)
