Summer Love

In My Kitchen Garden: Click here for one of my very favorite ways to celebrate the first tomatoes of the season.

A year of Daily Photos ago:

Freshly Baked Oatmeal Toasting Bread

(Oh my gosh, I cannot believe it has been a whole year and I still haven't posted the recipe for this bread. Oops. I have all the photos and everything. Sorry. I guess I'd better not mention that I'm hoping to post a different sandwich bread recipe in the next week.)


  1. I am sooo jealous! I planted late this year (par for the course lately), and all I have are a few small green orbs.

  2. I have a ceramic colander exactly that color!

    Can you please post some more pictures of your pretty hands (you have such beautiful hands!) or that guy's cute butt?

    : D

  3. Nothing beats homegrown tomatoes! They look yummy!


  4. This pic screams Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!

  5. Gorgeous tomatoes! Mine are ripening and should be ready by the end of this week. Hooray for "Summer in a Bowl!"

  6. Now that's just mean.

    I can stand the donkey, I can stand the kitties, I can stand the cute little lambies. I can stand the beans, delicious when raw. I can even stand the fields of new-mown hay.

    But tomatoes? Gorgeous, warm-in-the-sun ripe tomatoes? I can't stand it.



  7. Mmmm... tomatoes *Homer drool*

    Those look delicious!

  8. What luscious tomatoes!

  9. Nothing brings life back closer to normal than sun ripened tomatoes and yours are gorgeous! I made the BB breakfast bars Sat. (in all this heat-am I nuts or something)- anyhow my DH doesn't like almond, so I used a tablespoon of lemonade concentrate and it was spectacular - DH liked it & I took some to work yesterday & got a rousing thumbs up. Thanks for the great recipe :-) Tina

  10. you say to-may-toes,
    and i say to-mah-toes,
    when will you post pictures
    of your po-tah-toes?

    to-may-toes, to-mah-toes,
    po-tay-toes, po-tah-toes,
    post more and never stop!

  11. I just picked my first real tomatoes yesterday in DC. I had a purple cherokee with dinner last night...my first growing foray into heirlooms. I have about 20 more of different hybrids that are awaiting me tonight with Hellman's mayo,bread,salt and pepper. Your pics are fantastic!

  12. OOOOOOOh. Those are pretty delectable looking. I'm going to stir up some of that Summer in a Bowl, and please add me to the list of requesters for that oatmeal bread.

    Bread is unequivocally the food of the gods... ;-)

  13. Ahhhh that looks absolutely inspiring....but where do you get the energy????? The bread, the tomatoes, the lamb, the farm. You are Superwoman!

  14. Can't I taste just one of those beauties? I do love tomatoes and can eat them like fruit, which I believe they are?

    I just posted about out cherry and grape tomatoes grown on our deck...check them out, but don't expect to see anything as fine as yours.:)

  15. Those look positively delish! I wish I had the time to grow a garden.. the plants i have didnt make it (poor strawberrys*sighs*)... I bet those are sweeter than they look. YUM!

    Have a great day FG!

  16. Boy, those tomatoes look tasty ! I believe it was George Constanza that asked "the tomato never really took off as a hand fruit did it ?"....I digress

  17. What breed are those beautiful tomatoes, Susan? Apologies if you've already said.

  18. My Mouth is watering...
    I am a tomato LOVER!

  19. I guess I'd better not mention that I have the oatmeal toasting bread recipe, huh? Or the crowd will start throwing those juicy tomatoes at me.


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions.
