Tomato time
Jessie Atchison  Burpee Home Gardens Brand Manager, 2008-2010

Tomato harvesting is upon us, and home vegetable gardeners (new and seasoned) are being inundated with their bounty! If you haven’t planned ahead with ready-to-go tomato recipes (and you’ve shared all you can with family and friends), check out this recent post from garden writer Jan Uebelherr of the Journal Sentinel in Milwaukee. From panzanella and bruschetta to salsa and sauces, here’s 20 ways to make tomatoes.

Still stumped on what to do with your tomato harvest? Free site registration to online tomato gardening forum lets you post discussion threads and ask questions of gardening peers … It’s all tomatoes, all the time! You can also browse tips, recipes and preserving ideas.

The Burpee Home Gardens crew also has a handful of ways to cook with tomatoes. Our vegetable recipes page is searchable by variety and features instructions of all sorts. One of our favs: BLT Dip — a quick and easy party starter!

And don't forget to share your favorite ways to prepare or preserve tomatoes in our comments section below. We love to hear about your cooking and gardening style!
