I took the leap and planted tomato plants this year for the first time, along with my herbs and jalapenos. I know it sounds silly, but I couldn't believe the tomato plants actually produced!
And there is nothing, nothing better than eating tomato and mayo sandwiches all the live long summer! When I'm in the mood to fancy the sandwiches up a bit, I use whole wheat buns if I have them on hand. Then I take some of my fresh thyme, oregano, and basil leaves, chop them into small pieces, and blend them together in a small amount of oil and vinegar, salt and pepper, and grated parmesan. I pour this mixture right onto my thick tomato slices and then add spinach leaves and onion slices. Oh My Yum! Coupled with a glass of sweet iced tea, you'll wish summer - and it's bounty - would never end!
