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!!!
