Aventurile doamnei Tomata / Mrs. Tomato adventures

Demarez azi un proiect mic dar sper eu cu mare efect.

Intentionez sa aduc un gand nou in mintile celor care vor citi aceste articole. Sa le reamintesc sau poate sa ii fac sa se intrebe pt prima oara in viata lor daca ceea ce mananca zi de zi este intr-adevar natural sau sanatos.

Bunica punea in gradina ei mica tot felul de legume. Cand avea nevoie de un ou lua direct din cuibar si ca sa dreaga ciorba lua leustean direct din gradina, il spala cu apa de la fantana si il arunca taiat in oala. Strugurii se coceau incet si ii mancam doar toamna.

La fel era si cu rosiile, ceapa, castravetii si salata verde. Nu apareau pe raftul din magazin in culori imbietoare si gust de plastic. Ele cresteau incet si natural si era bataie pe primele rosii coapte din gradina iar prima salata o faceam in iulie, in plina vara cand rusinoasele patlagele prindeau culoarea mult dorita.

Aveau gust usor acrisor si mergeau de minune cu o bucata de branza langa ele si un colt de mamaliga.

Acest mic proiect se cheama “aventurile doamnei Tomata” si isi propune sa indemne cat mai multa lume, care poate si care vrea, sa cultive o rosie in viata lor, si din acea rosie sa gateasca ceva. O salata simpla sau poate un fel de mancare mai pretentios, nu conteaza. Ideea este sa ne aducem aminte sau sa invatam ca legumele ajung la maturitate in timp, la fel unui om. Au nevoie de timp si apa si atentie. Munca in pamanat este grea si cere sacrificii. Pamantul care ramane sub unghii nu este un semn de proasta educatie si doar semnul unei zile pline, in gradina, in natura.

Indemnul e valabil pt orice fel de leguma.

Si un filmulet in amintirea drumurilor la bunica.

English version:

I start today a small project but I hope with a great effect.

I intend to bring a new thought in the minds of those who read these articles. For some it will remind them of things they used to do and for others, it will make them wonder for the first time in their lives what they eat every day and if it is really natural and healthy.

Grandma grew in her little garden all kinds of vegetables. When she needed an egg she went and took it directly from the chicken’s a nest and she took the lovage  straight from the garden, wash it with water from the fountain and throw it in the pot after cut it. The grapes were ripening slowly and we could eat them just during the fall.
So it was with tomatoes, onions, cucumbers and lettuce. They were not on store shelves in inviting colors but tasting like plastic. They grow slowly and naturally and the first ripe tomato salad from the garden we could only eat in July, in the middle of summer when the shiny tomatoes caught the much desired red color.
They tasted slightly sour and worked fine with a piece of cheese next to them and a piece of polenta.

This little project is called “Mrs. Tomato adventures” and aims to urge as many people as possible, who can and who want, to grow a tomato in their lives and to cook something with it. A simple salad or a more demanding dish, it doesn’t matter. The idea is to remember or to learn that vegetables ripen in time, as a man grows old. They need time and water and attention. Working the land is hard work and requires sacrifice. The dirt that remains under the fingernails is not a sign of poor education it’s only the sign of a busy day in the garden, in nature.

You can do so with any other veggie.

And small video in the memory of all trips to granny’s house.

  2. Hi Oana,

    Loved the English version though could not read the other versions🙂 You sure have found your calling, haven’t you? What could you now do to go to the next level?

    Shakti

    • Dear Mr. Shakti,
      Your comment and visit, made my day… I am seeking through all “roads” of life, my own, and I think you are right, I might have found it🙂 In Romanian it sounds better as my feelings are in Romanian.
      As for the next level, well, I hope to get there soon, but I am patient.
      Warmest regards, Oana

  3. Oh, as accepta indemnul dvs. intr-o clipita, doar de-as avea o gradina. Anul trecut am incercat cu seminte de patrunjel, nu a functiona;, asa c-am incercat si cu seminte de marar (pur si simplu ador mirosul si gustul de marar, iar aici nu-i de gasit)…bineinteles ca nu a mers nici cu mararul.
    Imi e dor sa mananc o leguma sanatoasa, luata din propria-mi gradina, fara conservanti si gust de plastic. Din pacate trebuie sa ma multumesc si sa astept cu nerabdare sezonul fiecarei legume sau fruct.
    Si eu am crescut la tara si va inteleg perfect, asadar va urez ”bafta” cu proiectul dvs.
    Cu drag,
    Alina

    • Da, este o legatura care se formeaza intre cei care copilaresc la tara, in tarana, si mirosul legumelor, gustul lor, si in general intre ei si tot ce inseamna viata la tara. Proiectul merge bine ca am ajutorul parintilor mei, vor reveni curand cu episodul 2 al aventurilor :0
      Cu drag, Oana
