We made a video! I wanted one so much and finally got Michal onboard with the idea. I absolutely love what he did. You can finally see how we cook in the garden. And I wanted to show you what I love most- my tomatoes. Don’t you just love the variety? For first time visitors please see my post about growing tomatoes HERE
This year we had few new varieties of tomatoes- my new favourite is Vintage Wine Tomato- it lived longest, never got any diseases, fruited heavily and first, ended last. It’s a chocolate variety with stripes. Very good flavour, best when on the wine for a longer time.
This year usually bland yellow tomatoes were amazing. I don’t know if that’s because of my experiment with rare watering during ripening or just really good weather. No idea. But they were so much better than last year. My favs: Yellow Pearshaped Tomato, Pineapple and Orange Strawberry.
My other favourites from previous years didn’t disappoint either.
The salad I made in the video is the simplest one you can make. Tomatoes and their amazing taste do most of the job. I had the idea to give Michal’s lunch in a weck jar. It turned out to be a great idea. It’s well sealed, and nothing gets messed up.
