There's only two things that money can't buy - and that's true love and home grown tomatoes!

My dad didn't have a good 'mater crop this year, so no homegrown tomatoes for me! :(

Just found you from over 40 bloggers. Nice to meet you! Here in AZ our tomatoes are way past this point, but I discovered an easy yummy recipe for them--frozen (or homemade) foccacia bread, spread with pesto sauce, top with sliced tomatoes, mozzarella and chopped fresh basil. Bake for about 10 minutes or so at 400 (till the cheese melts). My family devoured it!

Oh, please, please tell me that you fry some of the green ones before they ripen.
Good to see you again at Java's Follow Friday.

Hi, oh yes home grown is the best. Due to back problems I couldn't do a garden this year, but I have one lonely plant out on my front porch that is barely surviving, but I saw a pink tomato this morning. WOO HOO! I can't wait to gobble that bugger down. Thanks for sharing & thanks for stopping by!

Homegrown produce is the best. This year we grew tiny cherry tomatoes. They never even make it in the door to get washed. They are like candy. MM. I am following you now from over 40. http://www.thriftymommastips.blogspot.com/

I LOVE homegrown tomatoes. They're really the only ones I'll eat. Hope you're doing well!

The tomatos look good but I love that old plate covered up by the tomatos. It looks like a rooster?
