You Say Tomato....I Say Tom-A-Toe...Etiher Way It's Delish!
Nothing says summer like fresh from the garden tomatoes! My hubby planted a tomato plant in a container in mid March hoping to get a few tomatoes a earlier than we usually do. He would bring it in every night placing it under a light, giving it a false sense of extended daylight hours, which is necessary for tomatoes to grow and set fruit. Well his persistence has paid off. We got our first 2 vine ripened tomatoes today. This is a month earlier than is usual for our part of the country And nothing goes better with vine ripened tomatoes than a pound of bacon fried up for tomato and bacon on toast sandwiches! This was our dinner tonight...quick and easy, and oh so delicious. Now to just wait for the next tomatoes to ripen.
The box top of impatiens in the background are fresh from the nursery. I need to replace the pansies that are in my front porch flower boxes soon as the heat will get to them.
