Bounty from the garden - Aug 17 and Aug 22

Dear readers, I'm drowning in garden produce. 

This was Saturday's haul. There's tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, peppers and one mutant zucchini. 

And then, a mere 3 days later, there was this tomato explosion. (Also, more peppers, and tomatillos.)
Yesterday, in desperation, I gave half the tomatoes to my mother, begged my neighbor to take some tomatoes (she didn't, her crop's come in too, and she's also got more tomatoes than she needs.) I also made roasted tomatoes, per David Lebovitz.

You can freeze the roasted tomatoes, Reethi! Can be used later in a lot of dishes. Also if you are a fan of Thokku, roasted tomatoes make an awesome tomato thokku.

It all looks so healthy, and beautifully grown. Wish I lived next door...

that is amazing! I am doing some work at the moment on food security issues and the need to retain food producing lands close to cities to ensure reliable food supplies in the future, and if everyone could produce as much as you have our food future would be much more positive
