Join us this week as we give summer’s tomatoes a juicy send-off. Check in daily for luscious tomato photos, juicy tomato recipes, and tips from the garden plot. And send us your own stories and advice! Tell us, for instance:

What’s the tastiest tomato variety, and the best way to serve it?

What’s the easiest way to can or freeze? Do you blanch and peel? What do you make with them in January?

Did your plants do well? Or did they, like mine, remind you of Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree?

Send us your best recipe, tip, or photo. We’ll post them along with goodies from our food and garden experts. (Food ed Margo True gives a recipe for Indian-style sweet-spicy tomato pickle.)
