Tomato Time!

Clockwise from top: Isis Candy cherry tomato, Mortgage Lifter, Carbon,
San Marzano, and Black Krim 
 We're three months behind but we're finally hitting tomato season here at the MKG.  I am definitely ready for tomato time.  On Sunday I went out into the garden and harvested just over seven pounds of tomatoes.  What?!?  From nothing to 7 lbs in a few weeks.  Oh, gardening, it's always all or nothing.

Now it's time to figure out what to do with all of them.  For the Sungolds I have my eye on my go-to Sungold Caprese Salad.  The San Marzanos are great in sauce or as slow-roasted tomatoes.  The Black Krim and Carbons will probably find their way into gazpacho, and the Mortgage Lifter will become part of a nice heirloom tomato salad.  Any of the above will work well in the MKG Summer Veggie Tart... the recipe for which will be posted soon!

So how is tomato season where you are?  Is it long gone or just beginning?  And what would you do with this bounty?

And also, a pile of Sungolds
