The green tomatoes that I left behind two weeks ago have turned into the most glorious harvest. The plants were so heavy with fruit that they were toppling. In the photo above, you see pale yellow 'White Queen', red 'Opalka' (don't they look like peppers?) and 'Green Zebra' tomatoes. I have grown tomatoes for the past 12 years here, but the plants have never been taller or more laden. It is very exciting.

So I waited until today to try Sonia's recipe. I made two tarts because we have house guests at the moment--two of my nieces.

|This one was made with honey mustard, tomatoes and gouda cheese.|
|In this one, I used whole-grain Dijon mustard and a little espelette mustard, tomatoes and Emmental cheese.|
A little tip: I hummed 'Thank you Sonia, thank, thank you Sonia' to the tune of 'Help me, Rhonda' as I baked them. You don't need to, but it added to the experience. :)
And a very big thank you to my garden!
