I'm Dreaming of Home Grown Tomatoes
So spring is finally here. I love Spring. It means I get to start my vegetable garden. I can't plant most things outside until mid May but I can start planting things inside. I have built my garden up over the years.
|My small garden with string beans 2017|
I have a small garden (16ft x 8ft), and a larger garden (24ft x 18 ft.).
|I usually start tomatoes first inside. I grow San Marzano, Big Boy and cherry tomatoes. We love tomatoes.|
I love when I start seeing all of the flowers and then the baby tomatoes. It is so exciting to see my work paying off.
Then the first ones are ready. Just a few a day. The kids and hubby are just popping them into their mouths. Maybe I can hide a few so that they can make it onto a salad. But before long they all are ready at once.
And that is when the fun really begins!
I start making lots of sauce, pizza, bruschetta, and tons of other goodies.
After we have eaten our fill, then I get started on canning it up for the winter.
It will be a while until I get anything from the seeds that I am starting indoors, but I can't wait until that first homegrown tomato. So for now I am dreaming of homegrown tomatoes. Good thing I still have some sauce from last year. I think I'll go make a pizza!
