Balcony Garden: Harvest Monday #58

The balcony garden tomatoes are ripening so fast now that it's hard to come up with uses for them all. I've embarked on what I like to call "the tomato diet" which involves including a tomato or three with nearly ever meal.

We need to eat our tomatoes as soon as they are ripe otherwise they risk rotting on the vine (which so far has only happened to one poor tomato - I think he had a worm in him but I just lopped him over the balcony without conducting a postmortem).

Thankfully most of the tomatoes I've been picking from the balcony have been good to go - no bugs or rot within cooee!

We do love a good breakfast fry-up in my house and nothing tastes as great as some homegrown fried tomatoes topped with a bit of homemade pesto guessed it...homegrown basil.  

Happy garden, Miss Piggy xoxo


  1. jealous of your tomato crop... I am overwhelmed by the amount of tomatoes you have............

  2. My black cherry tomato vine is now taller than me and its first three flowers have dried and ready to fruit. Here's hoping those annoying green grubs and black hairy caterpillars don't keep coming back. I look forward to the day when I have so many tomatoes I need to keep up with cooking with them!

  3. Your tomatoes look great! Congratulations on your green thumb success. There are many recipes for tomatoes online that you can try - perhaps sun dried, homemade tomato sauce, or of course tomato bevvies? :)
