Wordless Wednesday: 4 Kinds of Tomatoes

Don't ask me why, but David decided to grow 4 different varieties of tomatoes this year.   One is a slicer/beefsteak tomato.  I've only picked one so far, but can't wait to try it. 

The littlest ones are cherries.  This particular type doesn't get deep red, so they are picked when they are red-orange. 

The last one is a type of grape tomato.  They are like minature roma tomatoes and very sweet.  Rebecca has been eating them right off the vine. 

 Lasty, there are the romas.  We've had a steady crop of 'em for the past 2 weeks.  I roasted a whole bunch last night in the oven, and tossed them with sauteed bacon and leeks, and a pound of penne pasta.  It tasted like summer...YUM!

The green beans, cilantro, and lettuce are done for the season, but the swiss chard, zucchini, cucumbers, and of course the tomatoes, are going strong. 

Tell me how your garden is growning, and God bless your table tonight!
