Homegrown Tomatoes by Guy Clark

Chorus:

Home grown tomatoes, home grown tomatoes,
What'd life be without home grown Tomatoes,
There's only two things that money can't buy:
True love and home grown tomatoes.


1. There's nothin' in the world that I like better than
Bacon, lettuce and home grown tomatoes
Up in the morning and out in the garden
Pick you a ripe one, don't get a hard 'un.
Plant 'em in the springtime eat 'em in the summer,
All winter without 'em's a culinary bummer.
I forget all about the sweatin and the diggin
Every time I go out and pick me a big'un.

CHORUS

2.
You can go out and eat'em that's for sure,
But there's nothin a home grown tomato won't cure
You can put em in a salad, put em in a stew
You can make your own, your very own tomato juice
You can eat em with eggs, you can eat em with gravy
You can eat em with beans, pinto or navy
Put em on the side, put em on the middle
Home grown tomatoes on a hot cake griddle

CHORUS

3.
If I could change this life I lead,
You could call me Johnny Tomato Seed
I know what this country needs,
It's home grown tomatoes in every yard you see
When I die don't bury me
In a box in a cold dark cemetery
Out in the garden would be much better
Where I could be pushin up those home grown tomatoes.

We've got 4 different varieties... Two eating kinds (Celebrity and Cherokee purple) and two different Romas for freezing for marinara and other winter sauces/stews...

But, yeah... We are loving the eating kind... I won't eat a tomato the rest of the year so hopefully we'll have a late frost and keep these going into November...

BTW, we feed 'um chicken manure every two to three weeks... That is the secret to getting lots of tomatoes out of your plants...

Just at the height of our home grown harvest as I pig out on 'mater sammiches, I get a damn canker sore! For an guy who eats a lot of tomato base foods and also spicy foods, a canker sore results in a major diet change to get them to heal sooner.......damn things take almost 2 weeks anyway but if you persist in the acidic foods its worse.

At the height of tomato season this proves there is no fairness in life...........................

We have had a terrible summer, with drought and temps over 100, yet my tomatoes are producing. I'm getting enough to eat and plenty to freeze.

Spaw, sometimes the dermatologist has to freeze pre-cancerous cells on my face. This produces a red area almost like a burn. They tell me to apply Vaseline to the sore spots because keeping a wound moist helps it heal from within. Do you suppose that would help your canker sores heal faster? What could it hurt to try?

They also told me to keep Vaseline on an incision. Same philosophy.

Bobert, in an emergency, cherry tomatoes are pretty good in winter. I too freeze tomatoes for winter cooking. Sometimes I whiz a few and make salad dressing from them. It tastes wonderful, but you have to eat by candlelight because red tomatoes on green lettuce look kinda weird.

Never even heard of a plain tomato sandwich.

In the UK we tend to pair tomato with either ham or even more commonly, cheese (inevitably cheddar). The best being a cheese and tomato "toastie" wherein the cheese is melted, the tomatoes grilled and sliced and the bread toasted and buttered.

We do however have the "cucumber sandwich" - finely sliced cucumber, buttered bread removed of it's crusts and cut into little triangles, though it's more of an old fashioned thing and less common now than it once was.

CS, I'd expect--at least here in eastern Canada--that this time of year tomato sandwiches, with either plain or toasted bread--would be more common than even hamburgers. Many people dress the sandwich with butter, mayonnaise, or a combo of the two. Bitta salt and pepper and boom, Bob's yer uncle.

Good bread and real butter suits me fine although I too like mayo and the combo of the two. Karen's favorite as was her grandad's is peanut butter and tomato open faced.

Karen also made a beautiful batch of Panzella which I had to give up on too, but it was one helluva' fine batch!

I prefer the tang of Miracle Whip rather than mayo. I SLATHER it on both sides of cracked wheat toast and put way too much pepper on both sides. I prefer field tomatoes as opposed to the hydro toms* we get here from TO (well, Massivesawgwaw - Kent County spellin) in the winter and I slice em a half inch thick. A half a sammy with a huge glass of COLD water is a meal.

* Oh, I eat em. They are cheap. Just something "uneasy" about a tomatoe, or anything else, grown in a medium that contains no real dirt. Eh?

But R loves them and I think that sandwich described above would be a nice treat for him. I'll try that with thanks. I have done an open face in the toaster oven - tomato under cheese - cheddar of course. And maybe some salsa on the bottom for tang.

Just home from a hard day's work. Think I'll go out in the garden and eat me a ripe one before I have my beef stew that i made last night from potatoes, carrots, turnip, onions, peas and yellow beans (string beans)that I planted.

I have tried also a fresh tomato sliced on a spread of salmon as a sandwich. Very good indeed.
Spaw, my heart goes out to you. I was thinking just a few days ago that i hoped that no canker would develop. Fingers are crossed. Last year i got them and i think it was because i was pigging out on those sweet things.
John, I must try your recipe. Bet it would wash down real nice with a good cold beer.

My two little cherry tomatoes have been very sad this year, but for the last 6 weeks clients have been gifting us generously with tomatoes. (No, we ain't 'sposed to accept gifts, but I ain't about to turn down a home grown tomato!)

I'm not much for mater sammiches. I'll take mine, especially something scrumptious like a big German Johnson, sliced thick and smiling up at me from between the corn-on-the-cob and the half-runner green beans, thank you!

Although....one person keeps bringing us Amish Salad tomatoes. A new variety to me, and boy, are they fine! My own tomatoes haven't done diddlysquat, but the basil has thrived. Tonight I'm chopping up a humongous bunch of basil with those tomatoes, fresh mozzarella from the local farmers market and a bit of olive oil, and sliced German Johnson's on the side!

My son loves vine ripe tomatoes so much he eats them out-of-hand like an apple. (Now, if I can only get him to mop the floor and pretreat his laundry afterwards:>)

You can't beat a home grown fresh 'mater sandwich.

The best tomatoes I ever had I grew myself.

There was an old chicken pen on my property that had grown up with weeds. I took a disc harrow made from an old horse drawn disc harrow and hitched it to my one lung Economy tractor. I towed it round and round thru the weeds and honey suckle for about 4 hours until the dirt was all tilled up about 6" deep. I did not have a plow.

Then I planted seedlings I had started indoors, in mounds about 6 feet by 6 feet apart with plenty of fertilizer way down in a hole under the mounds.

I put a round cage made from 6" mesh concrete reinforcement wire around each mound.

Some of those tomatoes had to be juggled around to come out thru the 6" mesh. They were the sweetest and finest I ever had.

To answer the OP, not much is better than that. Ahhhhhhh, yum yum yummy! I'm along for the annual tomato ride same as every year of my entire life from early or mid August until medium frost (most folks will protect at least a few plants from light frost). Pretty well everyone I know eats a bijillion backyard- or local-tomato sandwiches at this time of year. We're not talking tomatoes in stuff or with stuff, we're talking instead of stuff.

The standard around here is: Sandwiches usually toasted (takes longer to get soggy), with or without mayo/MW, pepper, and salt usually sprinkled but sometimes it's in the form of cheese or bacon. The first week mostly it's just sprinkled salt, no adulterations. Usual dose is twice daily for the first two weeks of the season, then at least once daily till no longer available. Add a few of sun-warmed and eaten right in the garden with or without salt and a pluck of nearby basil and call it bliss.

CS, growing up in Ottawa there was almost a kind of honour in how many days in a row you could eat just-tomato sandwiches (except breakfast, don't know why, that's how it was) before you broke down and inserted some other flavours to keep from going starkers.

-Skinned them
-fried 3 slices of bacon. Removed them when crisp.
-drained the fat from the pan.

-Fried them till almost all the juice was gone.
-Added the bacon and mixed it up.

Yes, there's a certain moment when a freshly ripened tomato seems like the best tasting thing possible.

There's a certain moment like that with fresh mangos too, but it's not generally so easy to get them properly ripened when you live in the temperate regions.

I read somewhere that reading too much Cheech Wizard eventually results in canker sores. There may be something to it, I don't know, but the fact is there's no good reason to be reading Cheech Wizard anyway, so why take the risk? If you do, it could compromise your enjoyment of fresh tomatoes.

And they don't contribute to acid reflux like tomatoes do. I miss tomatoes, but I'd suffer a fair bit for a few local peaches those few weeks they're ripe if I had to.

"O.M. God cs.Never heard of plain tomato sandwich, try it. You will love it."

I know - it's a shocker!

I have tomato plants with green toms on right now. England's Summer is slower than yours of course but when ripe, I'll toast some bread and have a cheese free cheese and tomato toastie.

Sounds definitely a bit weird to me, without the cheese, though maybe I'll be converted by my own toms once they ripen? After all my partner never has been into radishes in all the years I've known him, but I swear the sheer crunchy, peppery, juiciness of his own homegrown radishes (at least to hear him speak of it) is quite something!
