I Dreamt of my Garden

"It's difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato." - Lewis Grizzard

We are back from holidays and - surprise! - my Tumbler tomato put out a few ripened beauties. They had no chance before because my toddler could not wait for them to turn red. I don't blame him. He did stare patiently at them and they, in return, did nothing. So he had to pick them green as they called to him with their shiny, round faces. To make up for their green cuteness, while we were gone the plant snuck a few red ones onto the vine.

Worth being away for.

Or, as my little son sighed before he bit into one, "Ohhh, beautiful red tomato."
