We Are Blessed

 I picked 60 pounds of tomatoes this week. As you can see, they were not all ready to pick; however our area has been hit hard by EEE, so the town planned a mosquito spraying. We won't eat or share any edibles after this, so I picked..and picked....Here are some of the "pickins"

I am hoping that the tomatoes will ripen on our deck...


I feel a lot of sauce in our future....


...tucked away for a brisk fall night as the last orange leaves float down to the ground...or mid December in a big pot of chili....

We are blessed to have this abundance. I will work hard to use every bit. 
Waste Not .....Want Not.

    1. Thanks Loi! I have frozen enough already to make LOTS of winter meals...blanched tomatoes are so perfect when you freeze for stews and soups. i've also dehydrated quite a bit to use in a nice olive oil sauce on pasta. Honestly, I'm looking forward to reclaiming my kitchen counters!

  3. What a bounty of goodness you have. I eat cherry tomatoes with chick peas and avocado everyday for lunch. Massachusetts has been hit hard with EEE. I haven't gone to the bog for walks in a long time.

  4. Sorry about the spraying, I didn't realize it was so bad in your area. Where I teach was just put on a high alert, I wish we could eliminate those insects-they have no use!

    Sounds like you've been busy in the kitchen!! I have to tell you, when we remodeled our "forever kitchen" I almost bought that range, I went with the DCS in 2006. I hope after you write the CEO you get some satisfaction!

  6. WOW! I would say that is a ton of tomatoes! Thanks for visiting my blog. BTW, your guess was close for the item that I had listed on blog. It is actually used for canele's. It has a custard type inside with a carmelized crust. Have not made these yet, however, I will include on my blog.

  7. I thought our little tomato tree was bountiful (I only managed to pick 3 yesterday) but this is AMAZING! You could open a little tomato stall with these pickings!
