When summer began, I had big plans to start my first garden. I was inexperienced and overly ambitious and now that August is here I am left with more tomatoes than I could possibly eat even through the rest of the year.
With the old saying “waste not, want not” in the back of my head I am getting very creative with all the things you can do with tomatoes.
One of my favorite meals to make with my kids is breakfast. Maybe I’m more patient with them after we’ve all had a good night sleep, maybe the smell of bacon and eggs makes me happy, or maybe it’s my strong cup of coffee. Either way, it’s one of my favorite times to get in the kitchen with my little ones and let them freely make their little messes and then proudly announce to daddy that, “breakfast is ready!”

Summertime is in full effect and I am making the most of the crops that survived all the rain. One of my favorite vegetables from the garden is zucchini. I especially love its versatility. It can be crunchy, creamy, sweet or savory.
After a long summer day of work and play on the farm, I like to go inside to cool off and mix up a few quick ingredients to go on the grill.
If it were up to me, we would eat breakfast, lunch and dinner outside, and sometimes we do.
I’ve always enjoyed grilling, but I have a new-found love for it since moving to the farm. Grilling out is more of a way of life here on the farm, instead of just something you do on the weekends or holidays.
