World's Smallest Garden

All of my hard summer labor has come to fruition, and now, the choices are daunting: Shall I make marinara sauce or mix this beefy tomato into a salad? Maybe I'll make up a simple bacon, lettuce, and tiny tomato sandwich. Instead of a BLT, it would be a BLt. If I were Rachael Ray, I might stuff and broil it. If I were Sandra Lee, I'd make a Bloody Mary with it. If I were Nicole Richie, I'd make an entire meal of it. So many choices. But now that harvest time is here, I can stop worrying about droughts and floods and just enjoy the first (and only) fruits of the world's smallest garden.

Hah!

You could consider taking an entire day to seal it up in a jar to eat during the long winter months....

(Oh, gosh, that "BLt" thing really made me laugh...)

Or if you were Paula Dean, you could bake it in as much sugar, cream and butter as a strong heart will allow! So happy to have found your blog ... cracks me up and makes me think (a perfect combo).

The arrow and the little "t" cracked me up.

You could make Barbie salsa. All you need is one spring onion. :>)

Very funny stuff! I don't know if I liked the BLt or Nicole Richie comment the best!! What if you have no garden?? Is that the world's smallest??!! I'm very impressed with your precious, beautiful, yummy tomato! Maybe a little jealous too.

At least you know no hormones or other fillers were added to the goodness of this tomato. :) Better get it before some slug enjoys it.

Personally, I am totally impressed. The only thing I grew in the garden this year was some poison oak. Seriously.

Debbie said...

How funny! However, if your tomato is feeling lonely feel free to bring it over to visit my clusters of grape tomatoes! These prolific little guys were planted three years ago and they just keep coming back......
