Red & Green!



Good Monday Morning All! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready for a great week! I am so proud of my container tomato plants, also hot peppers and jalapenos. A friend told me last year to plant celebrity plants, if I was was using containers and he was right! They have grown and produced more tomatoes than any I have ever tried. We like to slice, cover with salt and pepper and refrigerate for 30 minutes or longer before eating and the flavor is so good. I have made one jar of pepper sauce and from the looks of my plants I will get to make more.

We got a wonderful rain yesterday afternoon....you know what that means? I'm going out to mow while it is not so dry and dusty.

Have a good day all!

Thos tomatoes look so red and juicy. A tiny bit of sugar sprinkle on them is good also.

Oh! Homegrown tomatoes! Yum Yum! Bite in em like an apple, then sprinkle some salt - Reminds me of being at my grandma's in St Louis - we used to do that all the time! Thanks for refreshing my memory!
