“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

Tomato, Tomato, Tomato
a previous year's harvest at TTGH
I'm eying my 30-40 tomato plants with great anticipation of a bumper crop come harvest time! They are ALL still green .. but plumping up nicely. Oh .. and the aroma of tomato leaves as you brush up against the plants .. well .. intoxicating. Of course, this means a few 'mean' days of kitchen work canning and freezing are in order. The saving grace of all the hard work done each summer is the anticipation of sitting back and enjoying the changing of the seasons. Well .. I'm not quite done with summer .. but soon.
