Till the season… for tomatoes!

 When planting the garden, Mom & I went quite mad with the tomato plants. In fact, we dedicated a whole 15 foot row to only tomato plants. Heirloom varieties danced through my head in dreams like sugar plums for les petites at Christmas time. Only a couple months later, we are picking over 40 tomatoes a week!

romas, lemon boys, & brandywines. oh my!

On my way to the Beach for a summer vacation, I am stopping to press tomatoes for my mother to can. I can’t wait to enjoy their sweet summer flavor months later in some heart-warming winter chili.

Lovely Fresh Pressed Tomato Juice!
