We are on the road again. We are heading to the west coast. Just before we left I raided the garden for carrots, beets, spaghetti squash and tomatoes. This has been an incredible summer for tomatoes. We have been enjoying them for several weeks. I haven't grown weary of Caprese salad and Mr. Dreamy has been enjoying "mater" sandwiches. I've even dried two batches with a dehydrator. We planted 5 plants of different varieties, and they have so many tomatoes on them (still) that the plants have slowly slid down the stakes from the weight.
Tomatoes we hope to enjoy in the coming week(s).
We have left instructions with both the house sitter, and our neighbor, to pull the tomato plants up by the roots and hang them in the garage when the first killing frost is predicted. The tomatoes will continue to ripen. They will continue to enjoy the tomatoes. One year we had fresh tomatoes well into November!
Mr. Dreamy, despite being anxious to get going, asked if I wanted to grab some cut flowers from the garden to take along. What a nice gesture. I hadn't thought of bringing a bit of that garden with me!
