Can I tell you a secret?
I don’t like tomatoes.
But I really wish I did. I long to love a toasted tomato sandwich on homemade bread with a vine-ripened, garden fresh tomato. For some crazy reason, uncooked tomatoes taste like dirt to me.
*scratches head and thinks to self* But Kristen, I’ve seen your garden videos. . . you grow an awful lot of tomatoes. What’s up?
I need them for making the best pasta sauce. Because this family goes through a crazy amount of pasta sauce and it needs to be good for freezing.
Kristen is a former farm kid turned urban gardener who owns the popular gardening website, Shifting Roots. She is obsessed with growing flowers and pushing the limits of what can be grown in her zone 3b garden. She also loves to grow tomatoes, but oddly enough, dislikes eating them raw.
