Right from the GrowDammit Gardens…


GrowDammit Tomatoes

A shitton of tomatoes.

If you are my Facebook friend, you know that last week I made a whole blog post that disappeared about our tomatoes.

And, then all of the tomatoes we harvested disappeared.  Because Chef/Farmer Ted took them to his restaurant.  Every.Last.One.

And, he caught a lot of Facebook grief about that.  Not just from me.

And, he has been given the go ahead to take a lot of what must be almost 20 pounds of tomatoes this time.  But, he has to leave us a few.  Despite the fact that the tomato jungle we have going on threatens to bury us in tomatoes shortly (future blog post…The Tomato Jungle…wait for it), I am still insistent that we at least have enough remaining to cook with and do amazing dishes like tonight.

Tonight, we had a bastardized version of my sister Aly’s Okra Rice.  We had GrowDammit Shrimp Creole (because all of the veggies came from our garden except for the onion) over Okra & Rattlesnake Bean Rice.

GrowDammit Shrimp Creole & Aly’s Okra Rice Bastardized.  I’m sure she won’t mind.

The only veggie on that plate that we didn’t grow was the onion. We plan to correct that next year.
