In Mourning for my Vegie Garden
You know what I'm going to miss the most? Homegrown tomatoes. I love the joy of eating something freshly picked from the garden and knowing I grew it myself. But homegrown tomatoes bring with them an added measure of joy. They are sweet and flavourful, never refrigerated and eaten in abundance in salads. Mr Busy loves a little boxful of cherry tomatoes in his lunch box. And it's not problem ~ there are plenty during the height of the season. My favourite thing though, is sliced tomatoes with basil and bocconcini. Mmmmm, now there's a summer treat!
So I'm feeling a little mournful over the thought of missing out on that summer pleasure. If you're growing summer vegies this year, have a tomato and think of me!
