Our cool summer pushed all the garden rights of passage back by weeks.  I doubted this day would come -- this day when I have more tomatoes than I can eat -- and more coming.   These beauties aren't all ripe, but I'm harvesting them half green to preempt the greedy slugs that proliferate in cool, moist weather.  Besides, seeing this bright platter on the dining room table makes me happy.

I had planned to can tomatoes, but energy is running low, so I think I'll roast and freeze them.

  1. Oh yum! I'm thinking fresh tomato salsa, BLT's, roasted zucchini & tomato with red onion! I've always wanted to try tomato marmalade, have you ever? It sounds to me like something you Orrs would make =).

  2. oh, and look at this from smitten kitchen this week!

  3. Roasted tomatoes are so yummy!
