Homegrown tomatoes

Homegrown tomatoes

What would life be without homegrown tomatoes?

There’s only two things that money can’t buy

And that’s true love and homegrown tomatoes

Tasty pear-shaped romas, like other paste tomatoes, have more flesh, less water and fewer seeds than their more spherical cousins. On the stovetop, they quickly form a good, thick sauce perfect for pasta. Pesky garden bugs don’t seem to like the plants, but just to safe I’ve been ripening most of them on the studio’s wide windowsill.
