At first there was the steady trickle of ripe tomatoes that seemed manageable. It made for a pretty display on my kitchen table. I was enjoying my tomato sandwiches and munching on the grape & cherry tomatoes…
I am now hitting the too many to eat stage. Good thing Cory will be home in a few days to help me keep up.
The orange cherry tomatoes just keep coming and coming.
The containers of Totem tomatoes, that we bought for $5 each at Home Depot have giving us our money’s worth, and the container hybrid tomatoes that I got at the Sobeys garden have started to yield some very tasty tomatoes.
And pasta. And scrambled eggs with tomatoes. And guacamole and fresh salsa. I suspect when Cory gets home there will be Tomato & Egg Soup, and Bacon & Tomato sandwiches. It takes me a long time to get tired of tomatoes. I’m not sure it’s ever happened yet. 🙂
Switching topics, I was looking out the window one evening after work this week. I saw a young couple walking up the lane in front of the house. We do see people walking up there from time to time, but they did not look like they were dressed for hiking – they looked like they had just come from work. She had a little dog, but she was carrying it. I wondered what they were doing.
They walked up far enough to stop and look into the yard, and I could see that the young man said ‘Oh wow!’ and I realized they had walked up to look at the garden shed.
Because why wouldn’t you?
The cats have been keeping me company while I go out to pick tomatoes and pull weeds. For all that they complain if I keep the gate closed, when the gate is open and I’m out there, they often hang around.
I need help with all those tomatoes.
