Tomato hungry

hungry for tomatos


You know you're hungry for fresh, home grown tomatos when you check the ripening process multiple times a day.

I was beginning to think a watched tomato never ripens, but those Stupice tomatoes seem to be coloring up fast after the first hint appeared.

I know the feeling. I also know the feeling when the rats get to it before I do. However, they are living under our deck which we are having removed, so hopefully they will mosey on to another yard to live.

Yikes! Lucy does a very good job patrolling --- I have high hopes that these tomatoes will go in our bellies this week.

I check my tomato plants... all... the... time... :) I've been wanting to read Tomatoland by Barry Estabrook. I'd love to never have to buy a grocery store tomato ever again!

We just do without in the winter --- those grocery store tomatoes aren't worth it and it makes the first tomatoes of the year so much sweeter. I almost picked this guy for lunch, but decided to let the last hint of green on the shoulders turn red first.
