    Default Does your kitchen look like this?

    Seems like every year we plant way more tomatoes than we can handle - - we're having trouble givng them away - - everyone else's gardens are producing too. Before I retired, I kept the office supplied with veggies - - guess I need to cut back how much I plant. Naw.

    I pick a 5 gal pail about every other day. I have no problem getting rid of them. I have eaten fried green tomatoes about twice a week now for about a month. My okra is producing now also, I am freezing about a quart bag every other day. It'll be gone before you know it, enjoy while you can.

    Yeah, BT, it ends all too soon. We've frozen some & made tomato sauce to freeze too. But with just the two of us, we just can't keep up. If we use 2-3 a day, we're lucky - - but we are definitely bringing in more than that.

    Tonight for supper, however, I had a huge, softball-size vine-ripened tomato with shrimp salad. Can't beat it!

    Aah, yes, I'm sure those tomatoes have a lot more flavor than the ones I get from Walmart. But when I saw the title of this thread, I thought maybe your kitchen looked like mine did this morning. I don't know why I've never been able to bake with flour without getting it all over the kitchen, and all I did was make 2 loaves of bread and 4 dozen chocolate chip cookies.

    Been there many times before. Last year I kept 3 dental offices and two very large families and friends well supplied with tomatoes. Had to take a break from the garden this year, got to be too much with a new house and a lot of other projects to do.

    Oh yeah, I really don't even like fresh tomatoes either, but everybody else does. Everyone seems disappointed this year with no garden.

    Don't get me started...

    I took four Wal*Mart bags of tomatoes to work yesteday (about a bushel) and gave them away. These are the ones my wife picked yesterday morning. She gave a neighbor 5 or 6 and these are left. We have about 8 chilling in the fridge and our freezer is full to the brim. I've eaten so many tomatoes that my mouth is sore constantly.

    Ain't it great?
