Oh my! You have too many Tomatoes! Tomato Recipes


Have you ever heard the old saying “you eyes are bigger than your stomach”. I believe the same can be said for gardening, especially for those vegetables that we love to eat. For me, tomatoes are one of those vegetables. My mouth waters at the thought of a garden fresh tomato sandwich every year!

When planting season comes around, I get so excited that I kind of lose my head. When I see all the different varieties of plants, vegetables, and herbs my eyes get bigger than the time I have to harvest it all. Of course, my love for the tomato is one that gets me in trouble almost every year! There are so many different varieties of tomatoes that I just have to plant as many as I can. I remember one year I had an enormous crop of cherry tomatoes and I had no idea what to do with them. Unfortunately, many of them rotted on the vine. Even though my love for the tomato hasn’t weakened, I have become a littler smarted on how to harvest, use and preserve this beloved vegetable!

I have found so many wonderful and delicious way to use my tomatoes! And, if you are like me and lose you head, below are a few great ideas for your large crop of tomatoes.
