Tomatoes and Bears

May 18, 2009

It’s simple.  I love tomatoes. I can and will eat them every day this summer with apologies to no one.  I planted forty tomato plants this spring only because I ran out of space in the row.  I will end up canning some, eating many, making salsa, salads, sauces and sandwiches .  But mostly I will watch them. Just seeing a straight row of dark green plants with bright red fruit growing throughout the summer is satisfying to me.

Bear, the Australian Shepherd, and I will discuss our findings each evening amongst the bluebirds and lightning bugs, while eating tomatoes and crabgrass. (Bear eats the crabgrass) It’s relaxing, productive and for someone who enjoys a good tomato, exciting.

My Dad loves black-eyed peas and my brother has a wierdness for yellow squash this same way. And yes, Bear loves him some crabgrass.  So come on veggie lovers, do tell….. What is your secret food shame?

    Not a Florida veggie but I would eat an artichoke every night if I could. I love them!
    One of my uncles eats tomatoes every night. He is 65 and I swear he doesn’t look any older than 40! I guess that is his secret to youth.
