No Salmonella in these tomatoes!

First of all , for any of you, my blogging friends who are going through the terrible weather....floods, tornado, and what ever else is happening, my heart goes out to you and my prayers are with you. This is such a harsh year it seems with the weather! In our state, and in the local towns, no tomatoes can be bought because of the salmonella outbreak. I am so glad I planted so many tomato vines this year and so far they have produced very well.
This weekend is supposed to be hot, but hopefully no more wind and dirt blowing! So I am off to take care of the weeds and plants. The greenhouse has sprouting plants, but because of the extreme temperature, there is not as much as I had hoped.
I have a good supply of both red and green tomatoes. I fixed fried green tomatoes for friends who came to visit a couple of days ago. My friends teenage son was not that impressed with them, but was sweet enough to give them a taste.{:

The cherry tomatoes are doing well also. I hope to experiment making homemade salsa and sauces this summer. If any thing turns out good, I will share the recipe! I hope all of you who are reading, have a wonderful weekend!
