If you read my dejected post outlining my garden failures and my subsequent, more hopeful garden update, you’ll be pleased to know that I am now swimming in tomatoes! My wildest gardening dreams have come true, because I’ve always wanted to be someone who had more tomatoes than she knew what to do with. This year, I can’t claim I’ve saved any money by starting a garden, but in the following years I just may break even or even start saving a few dollars by planting my own produce.

ideas and recipes for garden tomatoes

Over 8 pounds in one day!

So what can I do with the eight to fourteen pounds of tomatoes I’m picking each week? Here’s what I’ve done so far:

  • Gazpacho (Here’s a recipe from the Gluten-free Gourmand)
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Roast, then freeze
  • Caprese salad

I am also considering canning, but I’m a little intimidated by that. Any other ideas?
