It's time to plant them there tomatoes

It's about time to go get them there tomatoes and put them out in the garden and some on the patio in large pots. But what kinds are best for Texas?

As this pic indicates, there are romas, cherry and grape tomatoes and a few beef steak tomatoes.

I like 'em all.

If you think you just have to buy tomatoes from the supermarket, buy organic and vine ripe.

And as for some advice on the better brands of tomato sauces: My wife likes Rao's the best but it is rather expensive, but it is for a reason. It is authentic Italian tomato sauce.

I think these links will be a good thing for those of you who really enjoy authentic Italian.

You don't have to be Italian to enjoy authentic foods from other countries. I simply love Italian. Maybe I have some history of Italy in my bloodline. I know I have cravings for Italian Pizza, spaghetti, ravioli, and when I eat meatloaf, I prefer having tomato sauce on it instead of gravy.

I am Catholic and the head of the Catholic church lives in Rome, Italy, so I can relate on so many levels. I once fancied myself a descendant from ancient Rome. I have an affinity with concrete structures that stand up to the test of time. In Fact I am fond of Roman history. The more I think about it, I wish we could go live in Italy before it sinks into the Mediterranean Sea.

As for the possible Spanish in my blood line from way back when, I do enjoy pico de gallo and just about all the recipes that include flour tortillas, salsa, chips, enchiladas, tacos and burritos. So I guess I have lots of ethnic ties with my ancestral lineage.

We can only grow tomatoes in a greenhouse as the growing season here is not long enough, otherwise.

Texas is a good place to grow these red round juicy thangs.
