Countertop Gardening

Tip for today: I bought some tiny peat pots, and had a lot of fun creating a small kitchen counter garden. I planted the wildflower seeds received as wedding favors; they are sprouting. I also planted pumpkins, and kohlrabi. When they are tall enough, I will transplant them, but for now, they reside in cake box container on top of a Corelle dinner plate. They get plenty of sun from the window, and I keep the peat pots moist.

Easy tomato sauce for freezing: I use five to six medium to large ripe tomatoes. I chop them up, or blend them into a rough puree. I don't peel them or core them. I love the seeds. I just wash them very carefully and remove any blemishes. I salt about 3 tsps. or to taste. I add some sugar to taste, or leav it out. Think pasta sauce; I love to season mildly with oregano and basil. I bring it all to a boil, then let it simmer. I also cheat; I add a large can of tomato sauce, any size, to thicken it. It is good to add about 1/8 of a cup olive oil, too. Let it simmer about an hour. Cool it, then freeze what you don't use. Then, reheat,use for pasta, pizza, vegetable casserole, baked eggs, bruschetta, bread stick dipping, etc.
