c'mon up and pick 'em up crewsk. when i was weeding before putting in my tomatoes, i noticed a whole bunch of tomato plants coming up on their own all over the garden, from leftover seeds. i dug them out and put them in pots. ya never know what kind of tomato you're gonna get. could be grape or cherries; could be big boy, super steak, or yellow pear.

I had a huge one that came up like that last year in our brush pile. It produced some wonderful tomatoes! I haven't planted any this year & since we're moving I'm glad I didn't. It would be one more plant I'd have to move with us & since I plant my tomatoes in hay bales that would be kinda hard to do.

Crewsk, please tell me how you do the hay bale thing. I find that very interesting.
Mish, there are advantages to being in the city. For one thing, you can find all those exotic ingredients that don't make their way out into the sticks.

You can actually buy them here - very inexpensive and good to buy a bunch of them for children's birthday parties - they make great seats!!! lol I'm curious too crewsk, how do you plant your tomatoes in them? You are talking about the small rectangular hay bales, right?

mish - I posted my recipe under Tomato Pie II. I "thought" I wanted one without mayo as sometimes the mayo is very overpowering. I may even try a combination of mayo, cottage cheese, and ricotta! But I much prefer the spring onions and fresh herbs in a tomato pie. While the dried herbs were fine there's nothing like fresh basil that says TOMATO PIE!! lol

Since I posted this recipe (way back when), and it's one of my fave quick & easy sides (& KE has mentioned it quite a few ) - I'm thinking about making a few changes for a new Spring/Summer dish accompaniment.

I will do everything pretty much the same except, omit the mayo, oregano & green onions. I'll call it an almost Caprese pie; i.e. sliced tomatoes, drained & seeds removed - sprinkled with salt & pepper, thinly sliced mozzarella, and again fresh (torn) basil between the layers... keep on layering ingredients until the pie crust is almost full. An optional addition -- add blanched, cooked fresh asparagus over the top in a circular pattern with a sprinkle of fresh grated Parmesan over the top. Bake until everything is just heated & cheese is melted.

Going back to the old fave recipes & giving 'em a new twist, makes everything fresh & new again -- a makeover, if you will.
