Guest Post (The Woman Who Ate Everything): The Great Tomato Emergency of 2011

OMG, I have too many tomotoes. Nine tomato plants for two people are just too many. We picked over 30 pounds of heirloom tomatoes this weekend. And the plants show no sign of stopping. I used twenty pounds to make enough tomato sauce for the year (see pot of boiling sauce below). My freezer is now full. Thank God for house guests. We have them for the next few days, and we will trick them by serving tomatoes at every meal. Sliced tomatoes with sea salt, grilled tomatoes with sage, caprese salad, corn and tomato salad, cucumber and tomato salad, tomato tarts, gazpacho.

  1. Hmmmm.... are we going to be eating tomatoes when we come to visit you the week after next? (LOL)
    Have you thought about selling your produce at work or having someone sell them for you at a farmer's market?
