Vegetable Gardening – tomatoes

As a consequence of reading Barbara Kingsolver‘s Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life, Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals and Deep Economy: The Wealth of Communities and the Durable Future by Bill McKibben, I started my first — and fairly successful — attempt at fruit and vegetable gardening in May.

I’ve harvested some of my yellow pear and grape tomatoes and they were delicious! My favorite way to eat them is in a salad — halved and mixed with olive oil, red wine vinegar and/or lemon juice, minced shallot, freshly ground sea salt and black pepper, and fresh basil picked from my garden. It’s been a big hit at every summer party I’ve served it at.

I still haven’t bought any gardening books but I’m pretty satisfied with the advice I’ve been getting from friends and family!
