Fire escape tomatoes

My fire escape has been very generous to me recently! I have more mint than I know what to do with, plenty of basil and parsley, a pepper plant with two green peppers, some celery I rooted, and a HUGE tomato plant that has been giving me a bunch of tomatoes recently! The plant itself doesn’t look all that great, but I think that’s because it put so much energy into its fruit. I can’t complain, though!

So many more!

Just a few days later–the ingredients for my hot kale
salad, other than the kale and pistachios
Cut up (I saved the uncut tomatoes)

I don’t need to tell you all how to eat tomatoes, but here’s my latest–a hot kale salad with tomatoes, pistachios, and Caesar dressing (Ken’s Steakhouse light Caesar–best Caesar ever). The kale came from my CSA!
