Green Thumb Journey

At the beginning of the spring when I first planted my salsa garden and began my Green Thumb Journey I said one of my goals was to have enough tomatoes to make salsa this year.  I am proud to announce that I made my first batch of salsa today!

I am so excited that this year I had a bumper crop of tomatoes and that I actually have some extra that I can make salsa with.  In fact, I have so many tomatoes this year I think I am going to have to do something more with them than just BLTs, cooking and canning salsa.  Do you have any suggestions?  What do you like to do with your tomatoes?  Any good recipes to share?


  1. You can always can the tomatoes by themselves to add to chili, or make a homemade spaghetti sauce. I don't have any good recipes, though!

  2. Cut them in half, place on a cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper, parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. Bake for about 15-20 min. Enjoy! I LOVE roasted tomatoes like this.
