It’s july (yep, I noticed, it has been for more than a week already). And it’s time to get back on track with a new veggie of the month – after the long winter had messed up our asparagus schedule… For me now that it is tomato time, it is summer. Yeah. When there are local tomatoes I feel really summery and really lucky. Now is my favorite time of the year and this time it is even more special because my first ever tomato plants are looking happy on the balcony. What more could a girl ask for then homegrown tomatoes for dinner?
Tomatoes make me happy. And just think of all the varities there are! My happiness comes in so many sizes, shapes and colors. Green Tomatoes is not only a movie title, cherry tomatoes are way more appealing to me than their namesake cherries and coer de boeuf has not much to do with an ox’s heart. At least for what I know. So come with me this month to explore the world of tomatoes. Let’s just cross our fingers, my own yellow and cherry tomatoes will be ready by the end july…
