Homegrown Tomato-ey Goodness...

Tuesday, August 19, 2008

it's an oddly perfect day today, considering the ever spastic weather bug says 40% chance of rain. in fact, the sun is shining, it's a perfect 69°, and there's a light breeze blowing through the house. as i was just sitting here, sifting through the endless emails and blog posts, i caught a whiff of tomato-ey goodness. is there anything better than the smell of homegrown tomatoes on the vine? a smell you'd rarely, if ever, smell when buying your 'maters in the grocery store. the 'mater plants outside the kitchen window are teeming with green tomatoes; i fear the day when they start turning red, because there will be a gazillion of them. they couldn't possibly turn red a few at a time, instead they'll shoot from 0-60 in 3.5 seconds, and i'll have to made 160 gallons of salsa.

anyway, the purpose of this post is to add #101 to my '100 little things.'

101- i love the smell of vine-ripened tomatoes.

I grew tomatoes for the very first time this year.

Unfortunately, my 6 year old has a thing for tomatoes and every time we walk by the plant he SCREAMS: "RIIIIPPPEEE" and grabs whatever may be ripe (sometimes not so ripe) off the vine and eats it whole...I have eaten one single tomato all stinking season.

I love their smell and their taste...nothing like homegrown!
