Promise of Success

After returning from our Lake Tahoe vacation a few days ago, I went out to water my container garden, hoping everything was still doing well and had not been eaten by the jack rabbits that live here as well.

I have seven tomato plants, two cherries and the others, a variety of Early Girl, Beefsteak and a couple of unknowns.  What I found was a promise of good things to least from the Cherry tomato plant anyway.

You see, in the past, my tomato plants don't produce very it the windy weather, the soil or the coolness of our climate.  But this little guy has given me some high hopes.
High hopes for fresh cherry tomatoes in our salads, Caprice salads in our future, and maybe even some salsa made with cherry tomatoes.

What's your favorite way to use/eat cherry tomatoes?

Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to leave a comment, I love to hear from you!. Have a fantastic day!

I love big home-grown tomatoes in the summer time.. It's the only time of year that I will eat tomatoes. My hubby though loves his cherry tomatoes. He eats them like candy....

I made a pasta salad this weekend with cherry tomatoes and cucumbers.

I also love to roast them with seasonings and then put them over angel hair w/ a garlic butter sauce. Mmmmmm!
