Mators, mators and more beautiful mators


My tomatoes have been fantastic this year the best I have ever had.
The Giant yellow is awesome it has the best flavor.
I can't get enough of these I have eaten more tomato sandwiches this year
 than I think I ever have and 99% of them were with the Giant yellows.
I only shared 2 with Miss Lois .. the Black cherries are fab they taste like little plums to me..
The Black Zebra's did great and made for some really pretty pasta salads..


My plants have been healthy and are still going strong which doesn't normally happen around here
 with the heat.. I am giving all the glory for this years mators to
 Farmers Organic Soil Conditioner
it is made in Newton, Georgia and this stuff is the bomb...  
Checkout their website to find it.. I promise it is awesome stuff...


This was just one afternoon the grapes, Roma's
and Black Cherry just keep on coming..


I also did Arkansas Traveler, Box Car Willie,
Grapes & Roma II (which is a harder Roma to me in texture)
 but was great for cooking with.


here's a little something I threw together `

Zucchini, Tomato, Ricotta Baked Frittata
~ say that 3 times really fast
Slice tomatoes sprinkle with 1/4 tsp of salt allow to drain then pat dry / wipe off salt if you are like me and don't do a lot of salt because the cheeses are loaded with salt. I tossed fresh basil on the tomatoes and added it to the egg mixture. I love my basil..
  • 8 large eggs ~ beaten
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
Mix together add next group of ingredients
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 herb flavored Feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese
Salute zucchini in a pan with following ingredients
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • a couple pats of butter
  • thin slices of Vidalia onions
  • zucchini's washed and sliced into thin rounds 
  • ( the amount really doesn't matter I find the more the merrier )
Lay tomatoes in a sprayed casserole dish top with cooked zucchini's and onions
 then pour in egg mixture and bake in a preheated 375 oven
till the center is set this one took about 45 minutes.

You don't have to use all these cheeses I was just using up what I had in the fridge.

As you can see I am not a recipe writer or chef just a girl that enjoys eating and
slinging together a meal every now and again.
This was a simple supper I added a blopp of sour cream
and chopped heirloom tomatoes to mine the hubby added salsa to his.
We both really enjoyed it but if you try it and don't .. I so so sorry ..

Come join the fun...



Hugs from Savannah ya'll, Cherry

  7. I am salivating over your delicious harvest of tomatoes girlfriend! I haven't been able to find a decent homegrown tomato in our area. At the grocer the "homegrown" Arkansas tomatoes look like they were picked to green and the ones I have growing are puny and dismal looking.

    Aside from the Farmers organic mix, how do you have them planted? Are they in buckets?
