Of all the plants we sowed in our garden this spring, the tomatoes and peppers were the only successful plants – probably because we grow them in pots instead of the soil. Almost everything else has been eaten by slugs. Too bad they don’t seem to like dandelions, we have way too many of them.
Anyways, the tomatoes for which André has lovingly cared since March are starting to yield fruit. I already froze some “regular” tomatoes – most of those are going to be used for cooking – and today I picked the first bowl of cherry tomatoes (about 1.2 kg/2.5 lbs).
These are really very tasty! We’re having pasta casserole with cherry tomatoes, broccoli and ham tonight: Nudelauflauf mit Schinken und Brokkoli. (I substituted some of the brokkoli with tomatoes, since we have so many.)
