Heirloom Tomatoes Goin’ Gorilla – Feels Good to be Home
It’s amazing what can happen in a garden over a few summer days. Last week we headed up to Park City, UT for the amazing Evo Conference. It was great seeing friends, face meeting twitter buddies, and having the chance to share what we love as speakers in two different photography workshop sessions. The ladies who put Evo on are amazing and it was a honor to be a part of it. Plus Park City is gorgeous.
Since we knew we’d be gone for 4 days with travel and the conference, early last week we went through a picked all that was close to being ripe. Peaches, plums, pluots, blackberries, zucchini, and of course tomatoes. “Now it should be a bit before the next round of garden pickings are ready!” we confidently thought.
Um… no. Were we ever so wrong. We arrived home Sunday to find dozens of peaches on the ground (Dante would have eaten them all,) but Sierra needs somebody to test if first – traumatic puppyhood garden incident), quite a few huuuugggge zucchini, more blackberries, ripe yellow squash we didn’t even know was close, and tons of tomatoes. It took about 2 hours just to harvest. Not that we are complaining. 😉
Yep it’s that time of year. That garden has officially gone gorilla, and we are loving it.
The heirloom tomatoes have gotten crazy ripe all of a sudden. Thanks to everyone to shared your tomato recipes with us on our previous post. We’ll be sharing some of those favorites in posts next week!
In the meantime, check out our previous Tomato Recipes.
Hope everyone has a great week! Happy summer days!
And last question— Is it possible to have too many tomatoes?
