We Have Tomatoes!

Posted by Dani on July 9, 2012

Real tomatoes. From my garden. Actually, just from 2 pots I have on the patio, but still… WE HAVE TOMATOES! All thanks to Costco and the amazing deal I found there of giant tomato plants, complete with tomato cage and several large green tomatoes that just needed a tiny bit of TLC to ripen, all for only $7.99! The only thing I had to do was pull them out of their giant pots and plunk them into my even bigger pots, and voilà – here we are eating tomatoes in early July. That is a tomato record in my family.

As you can see, this is a big deal. There is nothing like the taste of a fresh ripe tomato out of the garden. In my case, this is usually out of my mother’s garden, and it’s usually sometime in late July or August. But this year, our 2 Costco plants have been producing for over a week now. So this is something to celebrate.

And we celebrated on Sunday by making one of our favourite dishes for lunch – tomato slices topped with buffalo mozzarella, avocado, basil and a swirl of balsamic glaze. Delicious!

Now my gardening guru of a mother said that these types of plants are probably over fertilized and so won’t continue to produce much after the first bunch. I’ll let you know how that goes. But in the meantime, it’s tomatoes and bocconcini salad for dinner at my house tonight.

      we have enjoyed a tomato feast twice already. once it was bacon and tomato sandwiches, and once we had big plates of tomatoes, soft mozzarella, avocado, basil and balsamic. So delicious! Do you grow any tomatoes?
