We didn't plant any tomatoes this year. Last year we put one lonely plant on our hillside and left it alone. It grew larger than 20 x 20 and I mean feet! We had hundreds of beautiful perfectly round tomatoes. They were pretty good. This year in the same area about six or more plants sprouted from last years seeds. We left them alone. They were some of the best tomatoes we have ever had. Not as pretty, but meaty and rich. These plants have produced hundreds and hundreds this season.

Here is a picture of a quick 10 minute harvest from a few of our plants.

We made tomato tarts and I roasted some in the oven. They were like tomato candy.

Cut tomatoes in half and squeeze out juice and seeds. Lay on a baking sheet that has been covered with a silpat or parchment paper. Spread chopped garlic on each tomato, drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper. Bake in oven at 350~ until caramelized, about 1 hour.
