The home grown tomatoes are in the oven. Considering that the plants (there is a variety of them, from tiny grape-sized ones to fat romas) have NEVER been sprayed or dusted or even, for that matter, tied up to stakes, I was amazed that not one fruit had anything suspect in it - no livestock inside at all!
Hooray for organic gardening!
Some of them were just so perfect, I had to take their photo before I sliced them in half.
Here they all are before they went into an oven set at 115 degrees Celsius.
They've only been there for about twenty minutes and already I am drooling from the smell. Even my brand new herb plants got into the act - there were enough sprigs on the thyme to snip a few, together with pieces of the rosemary. Yum, can't wait till they're done!
