Garden To Table: Savory Tomato Tart

Category: Lawn & Garden

By Jane SnowMany people think of mid-summer as tomato season, but if you grow your own you know it’s September – at least here in Northeast Ohio. On one recent morning I filled a five-gallon bucket with handfuls of Sun Gold cherry tomatoes, bulbous, orange-streaked yellow Hillbilly tomatoes, pear-shaped (and sized) Japanese Truffle tomatoes, a couple of Purple Cherokees and one stunning, dark-purple Paul Robeson. The Paul Robeson was my find this year. My one plant, bought at the annual May plant sale at Crown Point Ecology Center in Bath, has produced an abundance of large, juicy tomatoes with exceptional flavor.But yikes, what to do when the trickle from the garden turns into a ...

VIDEO: How Precise Do Replacement Win...

Windows seem pretty simple. There's a rectangular hole that needs to be fitted with glass and vinyl (or wood).  So how much difference could 1/16-inch make?

Without it, you may be left with a window that doesn't quite close, or it requires excessive effort to force into place. Not only does this raise obvious security concerns, but it also presents cost and comfort issues.Plus, if the replacement window doesn't fit just right, air will move in and o ...

Reading, baking, reality TV—we all have hobbies that may, at times, dance on the edge of passion and obsession. For Uncle John's veteran Zak Kinzy, it's collecting a certain shade-tolerant perennial.Although Asian in origin, hostas fare extremely well in Northeast Ohio. According to Zak, the sunlight-optional plants are hardy enough to weather the cold and wind of fall and winter and still emerge each spring from dormancy. And aside from the occasional deer—who will eat practically anything, by the way—hostas also lack predators. This makes them the perfect choice for the novice (or experienced) gardener who's trying to add colorful foliage around the edges.Zak's interest w ...
