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!
