Tomato gravy and plants are growing

Tomato Gravy yum yum. This is one of the recipes I had a lot growing up and one of my favorite comfort foods. Nothing like a hot buttered biscuit with this gravy or any thing really on a hot buttered biscuit. I used can tomatoes but I just couldn't wait for my home grown to come in. Speaking of home grown here is a picture of them and they are really growing. This is my Friday up date on the plants.
In a large skillet a cast iron if possible.
3 Tablespoons flour
3 Tablespoon of veg oil
(like making a roux)
1 can 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes of your choice undrained (there are all kinds of flavors now)
salt and pepper to taste
about a cup of cold water

heat oil in skillet and add flour stirring till turns a brown color like a copper penny
add can of tomatoes stirring well (hand crush some if you wish)
Stir in half a cup in water and bring to a boil
Add water as needed to the constancy you like. Let cook for 10 to 15 minutes. If to thick you can add more water. Place on the biscuit.
