Fresh from the garden....

These are sitting in my kitchen...waiting for my attention. I am thinking some tomato juice will be made some time tomorrow. There is nothing better than home canned tomato juice.

They make me think of summer days and coming in with a load of stuff from the garden, and taking time to grab a tomato and a shaker of salt and sitting on the edge of the porch to eat till the juice would not drip all over the place. All winter long I have been waiting for them...we have been having them for a week or two now and I still am not tired of them. And I have not ventured beyond having them with salt or on a sandwich...but look plan to have some soaked in Italian dressing one of these days.

I also love to cut up other vegetables along with the tomateos and pour enough Italian dressing over it all and let it soak...my favorites are cucumbers, bell peppers, cauliflower, onions. I feel like I am forgetting something but can't think what....

Nothing like home grown tomatoes. We've pretty much given up on buying them at the grocery stores...never seem to get a decent one anymore.

Such pretty tomatoes. We love to make a salad with mixed raw veggies too.

Oh just look at those beauties. I have picked a few from the garden, but we're leaving to bring the girls down to Texas on Mon or Tues and I know when we get back we'll have loads of ripe ones and probably some overripe ones. I've never made tomato juice tho...I just might have to try it.

There is nothing like home-grown tomatoes. My friend's bell tomatoes are just now getting ready to try red. Late season here.

There's nothing better than home grown tomatoes. I would certainly love to have the opportunity to help you eat some of these.

Just seeing them is appetizing! Have fun eating and juicing them. Make memories for next January!

They look so good! I'm really enjoying fresh produce from the Farmer's Market right now. Been eating lots of peaches, corn, berries, tomatoes.
