Having that post be brought up again got me thinking. What if your tomatoes don’t turn out great? What if you put in a bunch of effort and time and your tomatoes end up with blossom end rot or they start cracking on the vine? What then? The sad part is that these problems don’t start rearing their ugly heads until you have ripe (or almost ripe) tomatoes on the vine. However, there are some things that you can do.

Blossom End Rot
Greenbacks/ Green Shoulders
HOWEVER, enough with the bad news and negative vibes.
What is more likely to happen is that you’ll have a bumper crop of tomatoes and you won’t know what to do with them all. So, when that happens, here is a great, easy recipe to try.
- Balsamic vinegar works great in place of the red wine vinegar.
- Adding basil or oregano is also delicious.
- Feta or fresh mozzarella also accompanies the flavors in this salad really well.
- Salad can be served warm or cold.
