Okay, so maybe I am a little excessive. The only time of year I like fresh tomatoes is in the summer time here in Virginia. I especially love heirloom tomatoes! So when the opportunity came up to rent a small garden plot in a nearby community garden, I of course did! I made the trek to Debaggio Herbs where they sell every type of heirloom tomato plant available and proceeded to buy most of them! Long story short, I planted 48 tomato plants in the plot garden and the 4 that did not fit, I planted here at home. Here are some pictures of my first “small” harvest!
I am thinking that maybe I should buy some of the following cookbooks!
