PLACE:  Kitchen sink
SUBJECT:  Homegrown tomatoes

A confession – these are NOT from our garden.  The squirrels have abscombed with and have eaten the majority of the tomatoes from our plants.  I even found a half-eaten ripe one tossed aside in our yard the other day.  Pesky tree-rats!  The ones that remain on the plants are not ripe quite yet.  These tomatoes are courtesy of a friend of ours who does not have the squirrel issues that we do.  There is nothing like the taste of a fresh, ripe, home-grown tomato.  It’s one of the best parts of late summer!

I absolutely agree with you 100 percent. A ripe tomato straight from the vine, even hot from the sun is food for the gods!! :D

Nice snap. Send some to me.

Great photo!
We used 44 lbs of tomatoes making the juice last weekend.
This weekend we are going to try our hand at some freezer salsa.
