|We are going to be eating these with dinner tonight!|
|Maybe some of these Hungarian wax too.|
|I really like how the roma tomatoes grow in little clusters or bunches like this. I don't know why exactly. I just find it aesthetically pleasing.|
I've never been so grateful for my food when I attempt to follow the seasons and not just run off to the store to buy more at a whim. When it was May and I wanted tomatoes, but had to wait until August the tomatoes became quite special. I've no doubt I will savor and appreciate them immensely as a result when time finally comes to pick them. If I'd just run off to the store that wouldn't happen. It would just be food. Not a miracle. Which it is if you ask me.
My garden has also forced me to learn patience--good things are worth waiting for after all-- such as when I watch the red spreading across the green little tomato fruits. Or watch the pea pods slowly starting to swell. Or going even further back, as we anxiously await the little seeds to germinate way back when the cold winds were still blowing. These lessons were unexpected for me and I think just as valuable as the food.
