A lovely summer sight

is a windowsill full of ripening tomatoes.  Chris planted five tomato plants this summer and they are now loaded with future summer bounty.  I'm glad someone in the family has a green thumb and Jonathan (gardener in training) seems to be following in his footsteps.  I, on the other hand, can water and feed and pet a plant silly and it will thumb it's leafy nose at me and shrivel up and die.  We are now frantically gathering all the tomato recipe ideas we can find in order not to waste a single one ... tomato tarts, tomato marmalade, tomato relish, Texas Hot, fresh salsa, or just sliced with mozzarella and fresh basil (which is also growing like crazy) sounds good to me.  I foresee a lot of tomato chopping and dicing going on around here the next few days.

We got a good chuckle out of one of the first tomatoes plucked today.  Not sure who it reminds me of, but I think it may just be too cute to eat.
