you say tomato, i say supper


i wasn't kidding when i said we've been eating tomato sandwiches every evening here lately.
last night, after a long walk, where the ground was cool and the clouds hung as shade,
i noticed our garden needed to be picked.
also, we were a bit hungry.
so we took our supper outside, eating them right off the vine.
the winds and heavy storms that have pestered the carolinas have caused our little stakes to lean
the garden needs to be weeded,
and the squash has seen better days.
but last night, lying on our backs looking up at the pin oaks,
i was thankful for this little 10x10 square of dirt and seeds
for simple suppers and old quilts
a happy life do make.

Yum! I wish my husband liked tomatoes. He thinks they are disgusting. I love tomato sandwiches as well and I wish I could make those for simple dinners on occasion.

Beautiful tomatoes!! Here in my little part of Canada, tomatoes are a battle to grow...what bounty for you, though! You should make tomato sauce to throw in the freezer. Nothing like 'putting up' for lifting of the domestic soul. :)
