It's tomato time! "Michelle's Garden Ripe Tomato Pie"

I spent most of the morning pruning on my roses and doing some clean-up but the thrill of the day......I pulled  the first Brandywine off the vine and brought it in for a mayo/tomato/cheese sandwich for lunch. I LOVE IT when the tomatoes start to ripen in abundance. I can eat them at EVERY meal and still want more. Hope yours are coming on nicely too, and remember to do your early morning deep watering. You don't want blossom end rot on those beauties. 

When you start harvesting daily, it will be time for Michelle's recipe, so I have included it here so you don't have to go searching for it like I did. Enjoy!!!

Rockin' The River for RELAY 2013

Once again the River was a Rockin' for a great cause. Thank you to all those that supported us in this great event. From the amazing watercolor poster by Michelle Nelsen, to the promoters and workers at the concert ~ we thank each and every one of you! The band "Yellow Submarine" did an outstanding job of bringing people to their feet and Chef Shale got great reviews on the food (you can find her now at her new restaurant inside The Overland Hotel here in Fallon). We also thank local photographer Kori Meyer's for capturing the evening so beautifully. 

I thrilled to report that we turned over a check from the proceeds for $1243.00 to Relay for Life's Chairwoman Lacy Lehman! This brings us well over $25,000.00 in the last 12 years!!!
