    Just thinkin bout how good home grown tomatoes are. Not many things better in summer, than a mater sammich with fresh bread, Hellman's mayo and a home grown tomato. Maybe follow up with a good ripe watermelon, and you talkin summertime fun. Ya'll got some fav summer foods?

    Love a good tomato sandwich! Had BLT's with tomatoes out the garden for supper tonight. I could eat good sweet corn everyday in the summer and squash fried with bacon and onions is hard to beat too.

    Mayonnaise is the devil. . . but tomatoes are heavenly.

    I'm not a foodie, but take a good, ripe tomato, slice it in half, add pepper, tobasco and cheddar cheese, then place on the upper grate of your grill while cooking . . .well, whatever other nonsense you're cooking. . . awesome.

    Grow a lot of favorites. tons of tomatoes and peppers for making salsa and stuffed jalapenos for sides with fish, cucumbers for fresh and pickles and relish, potatoes (so much better than bought) spinach (yeah saw quite a few in the last food thread that hated it. Fry mine in bacon grease), carrots, peas, lettuce, beans once in a while, black eyed peas, sweet corn sometimes, crimson sweets and ambrosia cantaloupe. Really love melons out of the fridge when its hot

    I hate the consistency of tomatoes. I’ll eat salsa, marina, etc, but I don’t eat raw tomatoes.

    If you MUST have mayo, try Duke's - or make your own. Takes an egg yolk, about 6 drops of lemon juice or vinegar and a good oil. WWWAAAYYY better than store bought

    Love maters. Love different types for different ways of eating them. Cherokee Purple are my faves to eat sliced with food. Juliet’s or sweet 100s for snacking, etc.

    Bought a gigantic watermelon off a dude at a stop sign yesterday. It’s been epic.

    Sweet corn on the grill is excellent.

    Chickasaw plums in the back yard were awesome.

    But what I miss, is my grandmas fresh picked and cooked field peas, with corn bread and a sliced mater.
