Southern Humorist Lewis Grizzard said it best when he said:
while eating a homegrown tomato."
One of the simplest pleasures in life is picking a plump red tomato off a vine, warmed by the July sun, wiping the dust off on your sleeve, and eating it right there in the garden! It just doesn't get much better than that, unless you happen to have some salt and pepper handy.
The tomatoes in these pictures were given to us by a friend who has had a "bumper crop" of tomatoes this summer. They are as good as they look, and we appreciate his sharing them with us.
Our granddaughter Avery Grace seems to agree with Mr. Grizzard, judging by these pictures of her from a couple of summers ago ...
