We interrupt our regularly scheduled PEACH-O-RAMA to bring you some other summer treats…
And I can’t think of too many things better than a garden fresh tomato.
So, I just sliced up a red and yellow tomato for a great dinner side the other night…
Sprinkled on a little kosher salt…
A smidge of fresh cracked pepper…
And I snipped a little boxwood basil on top for an extra burst of flavor…
Speaking of my basil… I am frantically trying to resuscitate my pour little plant…
Puddie says there is no hope. I say there is always hope! (Hopefully;) )
Truth be told, I am wanted in three states for herb murder…
I must confess that I killed my rosemary and regular basil plants and my boxwood basil is barely hanging on…
I am determined to overcome my brown thumbs… but you may pray for any plants in a 50 mile radius in the meantime… just sayin’
Oh and if you were wondering about the tomatoes… I didn’t grow them… Aunt Mary gave them to me…
I may not be able to grow them, but I can dress them babies up in all their yumminess!

I killed my herbs too! (Although I had help from a ‘lil digging critter of some sort.) Only one survived, but I don’t know what it is! We ate some the other day; I think it might have been parsley… 😉

I love fresh tomatoes! I have a brown thumb too, but did succeed in growing basil. The cilantro, zucchini and summer squash are a different matter. The cilantro never did do well. The squashes were overtaken by an awful spore-like fungus. I tried to treat them, but they just got worse! My tomato plants have given me a handful and I actually have 2 or 3 baby bell peppers. We may have decided that buying from a local farm is cheaper than gardening for us!
