I was on our deck and was looking at our tomatoes and guess whats growing in them....yep...a sunflower! Guess the birds must have dropped one of the sunflower seeds we give them into it. :lol:

That really is Mother Nature at its best. Tomato plants look very bushy, mine were always so leggy even when I kept them cut down, what kind are they?

They are Big Boy plants and a couple are Sweet 100's. I use furtilizer on them every 2 weeks and they're loaded with tomatoes but none are ripening yet. I'm afraid they're not getting enough sun.

What a great surprise. It's really pretty. I think tomatoes are a little late this year. At least they are up here.

Green tomatoes are delicious! Cut them into slices as if you were making a sandwich or burger, a little salt and pepper, then throw them on a hot grill (or a grill pan in your kitchen) for about 2-3 minutes on each side then serve with a little ranch or bleu cheese dressing. Almost as good as fried but not as heavy to eat.

Not my picture but a good example:

I love my fried green tomatoes breaded with panko/corn meal mix with a dash of cayenne pepper served with a spicy remoulade sauce. I have window sill full of ripening tomatoes. Think I'll go snatch a green one and make it for dinner. Ryan's picture made me hungry for them!!! :)

Big Boy tomatoes are the best.
