Here are the latest gifts from my garden. When I feel guilty for not quilting or sewing or doing much else, but filing COLA's, selling wine, paying taxes, cooking, cleaning, parenting, and repeating, my garden rewards me with work already done. These are our very first tomatoes. I ate them with a cucumber, an avocado and balsamic. Delish.
Kenny has an out of control obsession with tomatoes. He planted 40+ plants this year, and I am sure he'd be happy as a tomato/chicken farmer. I look at this little coffee cup and I laugh because all too soon he'll stroll in every night and drop pounds of ripe tomatoes on the counter and smile. Growing your own food is rewarding, but canning those suckers is hard work.
