The unofficial start to fall has come and gone (where did summer go?!), but the garden is still producing at full force. We have had a spectacular season for rain and everything has stayed so green and flourished in near-perfect growing conditions. My tomatoes have grown so tall that they outgrew the cages I placed around them and are almost laying over! And I’m picking gorgeous fruit everyday.
There are so many options for using tomatoes: canned salsa, plain juice, soups and spaghetti sauce. But sometimes the simplest meal can be made with these amazing varieties. My favorite quick meal or side dish for company are these simply dressed tomatoes. Use your favorite heirloom varieties not just for the beautiful color, but also the sweeter flavor.
