This is a repost from last summer. I am posting it for all of you who have fresh tomatoes in your garden, or are waiting for them to ripen. I also posted it because I just realized that my tomatoes and veg are coming on A FULL MONTH EARLIER than last year! Weird weather…

    You’re not going to believe this. I had this for supper last night, and I intend to have another for lunch today. The only thing I do differently is toast the bread. I really do like that bit of crisp with it – makes up for the absence of the bacon.

    Here’s something funny – I’m using the last of my tomatoes for these sandwiches. Yes, ma’am, our ‘maters are almost gone. A couple more weeks, and that will be it until fall. I’ve been eating tomatoes and sweet corn for a month. Sigh.

    But the figs are in now! I’ve got some sugar and some mission, and I’m happy as a fig-eating clam.

    By the way – if you haven’t read my post about our town saving a century old Compton oak, I can about guarantee it’ll make you as happy as a tomato sandwich. There’s even a video. It’s the second entry on the home page now.

      Linda, I was having one of these for brunch today and realized that I wanted to share it again. It is so simple and so delicious! I do believe you about Texas and your harvest dates. It was the same for me in California when we lived there. πŸ™‚
      I will go read your post now. You probably noticed that I was gone for some time longer than I planned, but I just had so much to do!!! I bit the bullet and just cleaned out my emails. I simply can’t read over 500 messages… no matter how much I might like to…
      BTW, is there a secret to getting your figs to set and grow? I have not eaten one fig from my tree yet and it has been in the ground, producing fruit, and then just dropping them to the ground while still green. This is my third season and I am still waiting. I LOVE FIGS. Thanks, L

      Celi, yes we are and dry too! Can’t wait to see what you will be conjuring up in your kitchen when the tomatoes are in full swing there on the Farmy!

    My tomatoes are huge, and plentiful! I planted a lot of the yellows and orange tomatoes for the lower acid content, and they have really done well this year. Of course, Daisy deer like tomatoes too, so it’s a good thing we have an abundance to share this year!

    • pixilated2 says:

      Lori, generally speaking I am not so good with the yellow and orange varieties. I do best with Roma, cherry, and the heritage varieties. As for sharing, mine get munched on by the squirrels and voals!!! (but usually only the bottom ones. πŸ˜‰

    A whole month early – that is extreme! Our chickens, after 9 years of helping weed the garden of all those narsty lettuces, have now decided that they’re rather partial to tomatoes πŸ˜‰

    • pixilated2 says:

      I used to let my chickens have full run of our acre (and a few of the neighbors acres too) and no tomato was safe from them! It began with the red ones and then the part ripe, and ended with the larger GREEN ones! In spite of that, they might still be running totally free if it were not for the DOGS! They are now safely locked up. However, don’t feel too sorry for them because they now have a safe and secure, very BIG yard with a lawn and my ROSES to eat… πŸ˜‰

So how about that? Go on; say something!
