|Summer is here, ain't it sweet!!|
Well, the tomatoes are fully and finally in. Not just one tomato here or there, but enough to be proud of a real pickin. Yesterday's haul is shown above, and is more tomatoes than I had all of last summer. The summer that was gray and cool. Comfortable for us human folk, but unproductive for tomatoes and peppers. If there were only one crop I was allowed to put in my garden, it would be the luscious tomato, my symbol of summer eating at its best.
The sun, captured in nature's own wrapper. Picked right off the vine, still warm. Tomato juice dribble down the front of another shirt, clear and telling evidence that I was snitching a freebie when she thought I was dutifully collecting for dinner. But well worth it.
