True Love and Homegrown Tomatoes

A very wise man once said, "There's two things that money can't buy and that's true love and homegrown tomatoes." Now that we are successfully harvesting our first ever home crop of the grape variety, I could not possibly agree more.

Every afternoon after school, before we go and check on our ducklings, we inspect our plants for bright red jewels. Neither Big B nor little b have ever cared much for tomatoes (much to the shock of their Papa and me, as we both devour them) but these little sweets are a different story. And personally, I can't get enough of them. I understand the magic and hope to make this a mainstay of our early summer ritual for years to come.
