It wouldn’t be summer without Naomi’s tomatoes. That’s what the Gillem family says.
Like plenty of folks around the country, 91-year-old Naomi Gillem of Nashville, Tenn., has been growing her own tomatoes for as long as her family can remember. And for her family, summer officially begins with a taste of her first homegrown beauty.
The roasted tomatoes below are a perfect recipe for a bumper crop of tomatoes—if only Naomi had extras. We salute Naomi and all the gardeners like her, who put their hands and hearts into tending these perfect treasures.
