Harvest Monday and Update

I know it's Tuesday, but I got lazy yesterday. I knew I'd have to upload a lot of pictures this week, which should be a good thing, but it takes a long time with blogger. This week brought the influx of tomatoes! It's just started, but tomato season is going to be crazy, I can already tell!

We've had loads of cherry tomatoes, but from the looks of it, they'll be slowing down for a while, I don't see many new blossoms out there.

I tried my first (and second and third) green zebra tomatoes, and I was VERY pleasantly surprised! I was apprehensive about planting them, something about them being green inside didn't make me want to taste them, and they are fantastic!

We got to taste our first "real" tomato also, and we sliced these two up for dinner next to corn on the cob and some venison steaks last night for dinner. Absolutely delicious!
It's kind of a good thing that I waited until today to show my harvest because I get to show what I did with all of these paste tomatoes! Here is dinner tonight! (Or the beginnings of it anyway) My first stab at spaghetti sauce. My husband made it last year, but wasn't thrilled with the results, so we'll see how it goes! It's been fun to have my kitchen smell like this all day!

Here is today's harvest, besides a few of the Margheritas that made their way into the sauce. Some more cherries, two Big Boys, a Caspian pink, a green zebra, and a few Margheritas that didn't make it into the sauce.
Join in for Harvest Monday at Daphne's Dandelions!
