We grew four tomato plants this year, 2 heirloom Cherokee Purples, and an Amish Gold ( paste type ) and a Celebrity , which has all the modern resistances to tomato diseases. I got the Celebrity as insurance against the possibility that the Cherokees might fail. Boy, was I off though...the two CPs have been amazing producers ! Super productive with ridiculously gigantic fruit ! I'll be blogging about those babies soon :) We also have a few zucchini plants that have been somewhat prolific, but no where near what you often hear about. In fact one barrel of the zukes got pulled up just yesterday to make room for a few Swiss chard plants. Love my greens !
In mid-August Jamie and I drove out to Grand Junction, CO, over on the Western side of the Rockies to do some hiking in Colorado National Monument and the Grand Mesa and also to load up on organic peaches from one of the many fruit orchards in the area. And we ate pizza at every single night at Pablo's Pizza. They are not a vegan restaurant but offer Daiya vegan cheese, so we did not have to just get the veggies on a dryish crust, as is sometimes the case. For some reason I dont have any pictures of the pizzas...but wow, they were good !
As for the peaches, we ate them raw, in a pie, and as a filling in some cinnamon rolls. The filling was a little too wet for the rolls and I would not make that again...the sweet fabulous flavor of the peaches is kind of lost in all the bread dough.
