Homegrown Tomatoes: The Last of the Season

A friend gave us these tomatoes the other day, and they were so beautiful, I just had to get a picture of them.

I'm sure they will be the last real tomatoes we get this year, and they are even more delicious than they look in the picture.

As the late Lewis Grizzard, one of my favorite southern writers, once said, “It's difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato.”

Good morning, Janie,
Wanted to say hi while my computer is getting online. I can be on for awhile and then, all at once, it knocks me off. *sigh
Beautiful tomatoes.....

And Mississippi grows some good ones!

They look delicious, Janie, and beautiful, too. And while I'm on the subject of beautiful, your new blog header is gorgeous!

Beautiful tomatoes! We have been getting them by the basket full from our farmers market here. We won't have them much longer, but I eat them like apples.....yummy!

I love homegrown tomatoes also! My grandfather always grew the best tomatoes, there's nothing like his! Last year, he passed away in late October, just when the tomatoes stopped turning red. When the family gathered at my grandparents after the funeral, the kids were all throwing those small tomatoes and I was furious. I knew those were the last of grandpa's tomatoes & oooh, it really hit me!

Enjoy the last of your summer crop!
