What'd life be without 'em?


My title is a line from Guy Clark's "Homegrown Tomatoes," a song that's running through my mind these days when our tomato harvest is nearing its peak. I've never weighed one day's pickings before yesterday's harvest, pictured below, which came it at about 13 pounds. I'm sure everyone has had quite enough of my tomato reports, so I'm including a little music to reward your patience.

"Only two things that money can't buy -- and that's true love and homegrown tomatoes!" -- hahaha :)

Neat! I heard that song once, long ago, at a county fair. I've been trying to remember the lyrics for years!

It was accompanied by another song about the virtues of sandwiches...

Never get tired of talking or hearing about homegrown tomatoes!

Loved the song. You know, removing all things spiritual, he might just have a point!!!!!

I didn't plant a garden this year and have missed it dreadfully. Your tomatoes look absolutely delicious!
