If you love fresh ripe tomatoes, this heirloom tomato salad recipe is a must try! Head to your farmer’s market for some fresh ripe tomatoes.
Heirloom tomatoes are everywhere right now. Farmer’s markets, grocery stores, and even in gardens all over the country. These tomatoes are at their peak for ripeness and I just couldn’t resist making a simple salad to go with our lunch today.
Our tomato plants are way out of control this year. This is our first garden in our tiny backyard. We put in two 4×4 planter boxes in the only sunny corner we have. I put in organic compost, worm castings, and organic soil.
Who would have thought that would have caused my plants to go crazy?? Three of my tomato plants are now close to 6 feet tall, and have well outgrown their tomato cages. We have tomatoes everywhere in our kitchen. (Check back later to see a post about roasting and freezing tomatoes later in the season.)
As you can see, these tomato plants are huge!!
