Simply Tomatoes

There's so much happening this long Bank Holiday weekend: Pride, Carnival season,  Poetry in the Park and lots of other community events in and around Wales, but we haven't ventured far from home this weekend, other than the garden centre to pick up some compost. We have spent most of the weekend carrying out joyful tasks such as tidying up both the house and garden, which was beginning to look a bit overgrown in places. It looks much better now, but still so much to do.  
 Anyway, onto my most recent harvest of vibrant colourful tomatoes from the greenhouse.

Whilst your here, here's a little peek in the greenhouse. 
Red tomatoes next to green tomatoes.
Abundant vines
I've made a number of dishes such as Arrabiata and vegan Puttanesca with fresh tomatoes, I usually make these with tinned tomatoes.  I have also made Tomato Pilau and Lebanese Tomato and Bean Stew.  

If you are looking for tomato recipe inspiration, please also check out 's a link to some tomato recipe inspiration.  
We still have plenty more tomatoes to come.  But some of the tomato plants have become unruly, look at the state of this (below).  It really does look a bit like an overgrown jungle or a tangled mess in the greenhouse this year.  
I'm letting regular readers, especially those that come through via Harvest Monday that, I won't be able to participate in Harvest Monday next week, as we have some some friends coming from America and then we are off on holiday for a week or so.  So hopefully, I will be able to join the following week, but this is my contribution for this weekPlease go by and check out  Happy Acres who hosts Harvest Monday every week and showcases some impressive homegrown fruit and vegetables.

  2. Your tomatoes look magnificent! I wish I lived close enough to give you some of our worm farm dirt which we don't need. Enjoy your holiday

  5. That's an amazing tomato haul! I basically have one sad little cherry tomato still green and lonely on it's vine. Hey ho. Loving the Meera Sodha recipes too - she's a bit of a food hero for me.
