Our garden this year has not been the perfect success it started out to be

We did harvest some kale and made Krazy Kale and Pan Fried Kale Ribbons with Garlic before a giant snake got caught in the protective netting and thrashed about for 3 days bashing everything with it’s tail…


And even though we didn’t plant zucchini this year I have a huge zucchini plant choking out my begonias with the prettiest squash blossoms you ever saw…

tomatoes and jalapenos

We did manage a modest crop of jalapenos, which immediately got turned into Prosciutto and Sausage Pineapple Poppers

but the cherry tomatoes…the cherry tomatoes have been the star  🌟


They got bathed in olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper, roasted,

and made into a lovely pie with ricotta, basil and cheese

    Oh I can’t wait for my cherry tomatoes to produce and make this!

    Your summer cherry tomato pie looks delicious Jenna and we love manchego cheese! We sampled some heirloom tomatoes from the farmers market a couple of weeks ago that looked great on the outside but were disappointing. Roasting cherry tomatoes is great way to infuse the flavor of summer in a pie 🙂

    Oh Jenna, I love tomato pie and have a great recipe, but I’ve never made it with roasted cherry tomatoes. Your recipe sounds so heavenly and a must try this summer, but not from my cherry tomato plant, which has only produced ONE tomato! Thanks for this summery delight!
    Happy 4th to you and your family!!
