Pasta from Rescued Tomato Plant

Filed under: Uncategorized — urbandumpsterdiver @ 8:59 pm

Today I made fresh tomato sauce from fresh tomatoes. I rescued a small tomato plant that was due for the trash bin.

With much tender loving care, pruning and watering, this little tomato plant will continue to yield a good harvest.

I had fresh tomato sauce which included grated fresh vine ripe tomatoes, garlic, onions and olive oil. It was delightful.

Processed foods are so bad for us. They’re full of salt, additives and preservatives. 

Since I’m a frugal minded person, I will continue to post things that are relative to dumpster divers like myself.

Fresh sauce vs. canned sauce – the difference is amazing.



  1. I’ve rescued plenty of plants and nursed them back to health – never found any veggie plants or anything though. I would give them away as gifts when they were nice and healthy.

  2. These tomato plants are the little mini ones. They’re a very robust color. I’m giving them away like crazy as the plant is really producing a serious crop!

  3. Our tomato crop was a total dud this year. We got some funky heirloom roma-type start at the farmer’s market, but the tomatoes would always get some kind of weird rot on them. We sprouted some cherry tomatoes, but they barely produced. I know several other people around here that had bad tomato crops this year. Must have been something funky up here this year. In the past, we always sprouted our own from farmer’s market cherry tomatoes; I’ll be doing that again from now on.

    Happy hunting!
