Vine Ripe Tomtaoes Coming Soon

"Gardening is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty, and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity."
~Lindley Karstens

I've been dreaming of these nifty cherry tomato plants, and my sweet mama and papa surprised me with two cuties today. Much to my delight they were perched on the back deck when I returned home from work this afternoon.

Aren't I lucky? My pardres are so nice. Gracias, Jossie and Ace.

Now I can eagerly await my first harvest, when I will whip up this delicious recipe for roasted cherry tomatoes.

Can you say, "Yum!?!"

*line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper

*slice tomatoes in half, scooping out seeds, and place cut-side up on pan (or leave them whole)

*lightly drizzle with olive oil

*sprinkle with kosher salt, black pepper, fresh rosemary, some basil, and 2 cloves of garlic

*bake at 225 F for aprox. six to seven hours or until caramelized and dehydrated-looking

Ok that sounds so good I would use Grape tomatoes which has more flesh less seeds and you can find good grape tomatoes right now. But I can not wait till Summer and have fresh garden tomato's on toasted bread with Mayo
