How are your tomato plants doing this summer? I am glad to say that I have tomatoes on all six of my plants. They are not huge but they look healthy and keep getting bigger every day. I hope to be picking a red one in the next two weeks. If you remember, my last year's crop was pitifully slim. I think I picked six edible toma- toes from 12 bushes. Ugh! I wrote that I was going to have soil samples from my garden tested to see what was needed to have healthy plants. Well, time went by this spring and I didn't take the samples for testing. Instead, A1 tilled and fertilized my small- est bed with vigor (and hope) and I planted the tomatoes with a prayer and some sweet talk. At first they looked puny and rather sad, but little by little, like Topsy, they grew big- ger. Mostly because Al watered and fertilized them faithfully and often. He is the reason we have green tomatoes on our bushes. Now...we wait... The Recipe Corner Speaking of tomatoes, we tried this recipe last Sunday, when we enjoyed a "just corn and tomato meal"-only good when fresh corn and tomatoes are available. I cook my corn on the cob in the microwave. Put 6 cleaned ears in a baking dish, add a little water, cover with plastic wrap, stick some slits in wrap- and cook for 15-20 minutes on high. Tender! Here's the simple tomato recipe: Simple Tomato Salad Alternate thin slices of Vadelia onion and fresh tomato slices on a plate. Top with crumbled (eta cheese. Add the following lower-fat vinaigrette balsamic dressing (or your own). 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar; 3/8 cup water; 3/8 cup olive oil; 1 packet Good Seasons Italian Dressing mix (I add a little sugar). Make ahead and refrig- erate for an hour if possible.
