"O! she doth teach the torches to burn bright"

Juliet is producing - big time! - and her fruits are a bright reddish orange - so beautiful. So many were dropping off onto the ground that I decided to halve and bake them in the oven for a couple of hours to preserve them for a few more days.

Drizzled with a very little olive oil and sprinkled with just a hint of salt, they roasted for 2 plus hours at 200 degrees, losing water but retaining sweetness.

They are great on pizzas or in salads, or just popped into the mouth as a snack straight from the fridge. I've been told they freeze well, too, but ours never made it that far.

I'll bet Shakespeare loved tomato season, too.

You remind me, I must put some 'marto seeds into wee pots before we leave.

You named your tomato plant Juliet? Very sweet.

Morgan, yes and find someone to water them for you!

Denise, actually, she got her name from the tomato breeder - she came to me already named. So did Paul (Robeson), the variety that makes the world's sweetest tomatoes!

Like sunshine in your mouth, I'll bet. Because Juliet is the sun.
Great idea.
