I just picked these a few minutes ago. These tomatoes are like the Energizer Bunny, and I have to wonder how much longer they will be growing and ripening. There are still quite a few green and orange ones on the vine. I'm still not well, although on the mend with some antibiotics, and thought having some fresh tomatoes would be rather health promoting. Also having not gone out since last Sunday, I have no new restaurants to write about, and I certainly haven't felt like cooking. And these red beauties always seem so photogenic. What I have had time to do is read. Are you familiar with the Ringing Cedars series? A friend recommended them, and I haven't been able to put them down. The books are like nothing I've ever read and rather fantastical. One of the interesting things written in the beginning of the story is how plants and humans are so connected that by growing your own food and talking to your plants and getting your hands in the dirt, the plant actually responds to this care by producing whatever particular substances that your individual body needs for healing at the time. So that was a second reason to pick and eat some of my hand grown tomatoes this evening. At any rate I'm still mending and thought I'd pop in for an update. May be a few more days before I'm back to regular posting.
