Home Grown Tomatoes

This year our garden produced a bumper crop of tomatoes. We were particularly busy, and lucky to pick them - no time for cooking. The home grown tomatoes are delicious, but you can only eat so many.  After giving away bags of tomatoes, there were LOTS left, and some were starting to go bad. How do you quickly use tomatoes before they go to waste?  Here are 3 ideas to quickly use lots of tomatoes.

What is a recycling extravaganza? An event, usually sponsored by a community or municipal group, where residents can bring unwanted "stuff" to be recycled.

What can you recycle? Each event has its own list of items. Read the flyer for the event or go to the webpage to get the details. Typical items include:

  • Scrap Metal
  • Eye Glasses (Lyons Club usually collects and distributes)
  • Electronics (look carefully to see what this includes - old monitors and TVs are illegal to put in the landfill, and also getting harder to recycle.
  • Old Bikes
  • Garden Tools
  • Medical Equipment
  • Books
  • Many More - check your event listings
