I Took Your Suggestions For Tomatoes

This week I asked a simple question about tomatoes. I asked what everyone did with the tomatoes that have bad spots in them. Whether it's from blossom end rot, worms, or a fungus, it happens. I've always had plenty of tomatoes, so I have been tossing them into the compost. I decided I wanted to find out what others think. I also got a suggestion for cucumbers. These are the results.

Things I Cook From My Garden

My Daily Bread

In case you don't know, I'm a gardener. Well, sort of. If I compare my self to my dad, I'm a wannabee. He always had a few acres to toil. I've got a lot less than that. A WHOLE lot less. But I do what I can to grow stuff. I keep my hands dirty so my mind so my mind can be clean.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Radishes, and Stuff

Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe

Ok. I admit it. I've misspelled brussels sprouts about fifteen times this morning. I keep leaving off the 's'. I want to spell it brussel sprouts. But then I wouldn't be giving them proper credit to Brussels, Belgium, would I? At any rate, I grew some. Which is why it says "Home Grown" in the title. I have always steamed them. But I wanted to try something different, since these were special. I asked on Facebook. Almost everyone agreed. Roasting them was the way to go. This is the recipe I used.
