how 'bout this?

Okay, I checked my garden again today. All but ONE of those tomatoes will sit on the ledge of my kitchen window for a day or two until they become fully ripe. (I AIN'T putting 'em in my refrigerator!!!) The big 'un, I intend to eat with supper tonight.

I didn't grow the Vidalia onion--- I bought it at Kroger's--- but I just threw it in the photo for the hell of it. Some of the banana pepper look kinda scrawney, but they're ready to eat, so I picked 'em.

But best of all--- LOOKIT THE PITCHER!!! I used a flash, which is what several readers recommended that I try, and it came out IN FOCUS!!! I'll be damned. Maybe I can figure out how to work my camera after all.

BWHAHAHAAA! I just LOVE IT when a plan comes together.


I'm lookin'! I'm LOOKIN"!!!
Muchie betta.

I dunno about the corn, Toni. It's lookin' kinda peak-ed and it may up and die on me. Along with my got-dam okra, which I really WANTED to grow well.

But I've got 'maters! PLENTY of 'em!!!

Damn right! NO self respecting tomato eater will EVAR put a tomato in the fridge.

I'm way behind on the comments.

First. There isn't anything wrong with chilling a tomato. Don't store it in the refrigerator, leave it on your windowsill, but nothing beats a good chilled tomato with a little salt.

Second. Damn leg cramps hurt. Forget everything anybody told you about cramps. Quinine will shut a cramp down in seconds. Either from tonic water, or those litle leg cramp pills you can get at any good drug store. Quinine. - - And, you don't have to worry about getting malaria.

Third. Yeah, use the flash. It works.

Lookin' good. I gathered another mess of blackeyed peas and okra while ago. I am having to pick tomatoes just as that start to yellow to keep the sun from ruining them..and the damn varmits out of them. I didn't know a gotdam tree rat would take a bit out of a ripe 'mater' but I learn a little bit every day.
