Leah makes the most expressive faces when she’s trying our new recipes! Here’s a quick recap of how well (or not) she liked the Rainbow Tuna Ring with jello, tuna, and veggies, the Supreme Dessert with jello, peaches and Dreamwhip, and Polynesian salad made from spam, rice, orange jello, sprouts, celery and water chestnuts. If the colors of these dishes don’t cheer you up, and the taste is questionable, at least you’ll get some laughs.
Home grown, fresh tomatoes are so much different than what you buy in the store that we should probably have a different name for them. They are sweeter and juicier, with a wide variety of flavors, colors and shapes depending on what variety you grow. Anna Bananas are yellow, heart shaped and meaty. Cherokee purples don’t quite turn purple, but they have a deeper, sweeter tone. Italian sausage tomatoes are oval and great for sauce.
If you want to eat the plastic tomatoes from the grocery store during the winter, ok. But summer time is for the real thing and we’re going to tell you how to grow them no matter where you live or how big your growing space is. Right now we’re busy at work on our next “Quick! Plant Something!” issue focusing on tomatoes. Stay tuned, or sign up for our newsletter, and you’ll be on your way to the kind of tomatoes you just can’t buy.
