Garden Tomatoes

At long last: Aren’t they beautiful?

I’ve added the July recipes to the Recipes by Cooking Method Page so that you will be able to find them easily. I’ve also put links at the end of each July recipe to similar recipes on my blog. For example, if you like the tsukemono you’re one click away from finding other recipes for Japanese pickles.

It's lovely to have someone cook a delicious meal for you.

And it’s time to thank Mr. Tess for his wonderful support. Not least of which is the lastest meal he cooked for me this week.




And thanks for not complaining when we eat teriyaki chicken day after day while I perfect my techniqe. And thanks for saying that he liked the “Maize Kanten” that needs a bit more experimenting to perfect.

  1. Those are gorgeous tomatoes. I am making it a priority to get to a farmers’ market this weekend and get some tomatoes. It’s a shame I haven’t done so already!

  2. It is exciting to have them growing in the back yard!

    Oh, and I suggest that tomatoes pair well with “Shall We Dance.”
    “…You like potato and I like potahto,
    You like tomato and I like tomahto;
    Potato, potahto, tomato, tomahto!
    Let’s call the whole thing off!…”

  3. Hi Tess, our garden tomatoes are going well too, my first time experience. It’s lovely to have your own grown vegetables.

  4. janetching,

    It IS amazing how good tomatoes are when they really ripen naturally.

    If you look at the picture at the beginning of the post, you’ll see some green tomatoes at the bottom of the bowl. They fell off accidentally when we were tying the vines more securely. Well, I could not bear to toss them out! They are still in a little bowl on my counter, and you know what? They have turned red and look very nice and tasty. But something tells me they will taste like commercial off-season tomatoes that I buy in the winter… I LOVE that Mr. Tess made this raised bed for me!!! (see my other “garden post” for why we need a raised bed: walnut trees)
