Tomatoes 101

There has not been a lot of sewing going on at Casa Random Thoughts but that does not mean there has not been a lot of activity. My blog is called Random for a reason.  I have been doing lots of random things, mostly doctor visits and gardening.
It seems I have been able to out fox that pesky rabbit when it comes to eating all my tomatoes. I used my aluminum foil trick and it keeps the evil bunny from eating the tomatoes. I wrap the tomatoes in aluminum foil. You don't even need to wrap all the tomatoes, just a good group on each plant and it seems to keep the bunny from tasting or devouring MY tomatoes.

I planted 11 varieties, several of which are new to me this year. The * denotes an heirloom variety. There are all different shapes, colors and sizes of tomatoes. I think I will be making salsa this weekend because I also picked several jalapeno peppers.

With the eggplant and zucchini, I guess I will be making some ratatouille, too.
There has been a little bit of sewing going on, but it's for my Stitch Tease Bee and I can't share it just yet.

I decided to link up with Live a Colorful Life's Random Thursday.

Wow what a great variety of tomatoes! I think a bird pecked at a few of mine!

So do the tomatoes in foil still ripen? This is an excellent trick and you have the coolest tomatoes!

Carla said...

Yummy! Tomato, basil and bocconcini cheese is my favourite salad! I'll bring the cheese!

I'm a tomato lover! We grow so many tomatoes each year we should start a farmer's market just for them! If you enjoyed it this year I suggest you try black tomatoes next year! They are so delicious. The flavor is so wonderful. I grew a black cherry tomato a few years ago and it was the best tomato flavor I'd ever had. It was very intense and fruity. I can't wait to grow more black tomato varieties next year.

Loving the thought of your space=age plants in the garden; very 2012!

I think your green beans look good as well. Are you going to the quilt show this weekend?

Annabella said...

Hmmm. Also now thinking tomato crostini with tapenade and basil.

Beautiful tomatoes, I'm drooling right now :)) I love your pictures, they're so clean! Enjoy your harvest! Thanks so much for sharing!

We have a problem with birds (mostly quail) on our side of the Cascades, and tried out hanging big streamers of flash tape from twine we put about 6 feet off the ground between fences. It has worked incredibly well. I wonder if it'd work for rabbits. You can kind of see it in garden pictures that I recently put on my blog.
