Ah! Those summer tomatoes!


After a spate of 90 to 100 degree days in August, I harvested a tomato that was all it could be! Back a few years ago, I published a post titled, ‘A tomato that’s been raped!‘ It was a short piece that

contrasted the so-called ‘hot house’ tomatoes that are served at restaurants with the slightly better ‘farm grown’ varieties that show up at local groceries in the spring of every year. While the later do taste OK, they really don’t hold a candle to the real thing! That is, a ‘mater’ that you have grown in your own back yard! I think these pictures tell the whole story all by themselves!

I am just a simple man with a head full of sand who is currently residing in a small town called Forsyth Missouri. I enjoy hiking, camping and all things related to gardening. I rec’d my degree from SIU majoring in Biology many moons ago and still maintain a great interest in the study of all living things. My hobbies include meteorology, the Finnish language and inhabiting cyberspace whenever possible.
