These Tomatoes and Those Tomatoes

August 3rd, 2005

Want to see some really nice tomatoes? Click here. Want to see mine? Click here.

This time it’s birds AND hornworms.

But I’m so very grateful that I live in a time and place where this is a disappointment, not a disaster, and I CAN go to the farmer’s market and buy tomatoes just as good (or better) than what I can grow.

The local farmer’s markets are just overflowing with wonderful fruits and vegetables now, including some things I’ve never seen before. Why didn’t I know about donut peaches until yesterday? I was skeptical, but bought them anyway. And you know what? They’re great! I haven’t liked the white peaches I’ve tried in the past, but these are very sweet and fragrant. I plan to cut them up and serve them with ice cream and honey, but that’s only if I don’t eat them all first.
