Cherry Tomato Plant
Beefsteak Tomato Plant
Our Little Container Garden
Condo living in South Florida, has it's advantages and disadvantages
in regards to maintaining a garden.
But I do what I can...
I bought my little tomato plants about six weeks ago,
and they were only a couple inches tall,
now, how these babies have flourished!
Which makes tomato season early for me.
My neighbor and I share this little community garden by our pool.
Growing in Our Garden:
one lime tree
One of my favorite Southern summer treats
is Fried Green Tomatos...
though I tend not to deep fry
anything in my kitchen,
here is a simple and slightly healthier recipe.
Fried Green Tomatos
1-2 green tomatos
1/2 -3/4 cup of self-rising corn flour
3 tbsp vegetable, canola, or light olive oil
Slice tomatos about a 1/3 of an inch thick.
Dip each slice in beaten egg,
the dredge in cornmeal flour,
coating both sides.
Once oil is heated
on medium to medium-high in skillet or fry pan,
fit tomatoes in and cook to desired texture.
(I prefer them a little al dente, with the breading just beginning to crisp.)
