The season’s first tomatoes have finally arrived in my garden . . . although the weather is really cooling down this week, which doesn’t give them the heat they need to keep ripening. I planted three beds of tomatoes this year, hoping for a bumper crop and a lot of leftovers for canning tomato sauce, but we had such a cool, wet spring – through June! – that I’m not sure how well they’re going to fare. That means it’s important to enjoy them while they’re here!
I went for variety this year – we’ve got red, gold, green striped, maroon, and even purple!Pin It
