You say tomato, I say tomahto...either way they are my favorite things to grow, there is nothing like a fresh picked tomato! I have 6 varieties of tomatoes growing in my garden this year, my favorites are the grape and the heirloom variety. The grapes are so sweet like candy and a great snack to nibble on. I also like to roast them to toss into pasta and for pizza. This is my first year growing the heirloom tomatoes and they are HUGE, very meaty and tasty. Today I picked about 7 and I am making a fresh sauce. I do not follow any recipe just a little of this and that. Olive oil, fresh garlic and chopped onions, fresh basil, some red pepper flakes, salt,fresh ground pepper and let simmer. I will need to add some tomato paste later to thicken it up. An easy sauce that you can do so much with.
