Ode the the tomato
Tight bright skin covers
Red sweet flesh, I am saving
For my winter mouth
I stopped at my little man down the road yesturday, trying to catch the last of the season's peaches, and tomatoes.
Only, 2 half falts of peaches. I bought one. Very small ripe peaches, which we have eaten like candy. They are so juicy, we should be eating them out of doors.
I bought 28 pounds of tomatoes. Which I plan to blanche, dice and freeze.
I bought 2 vidallia onions.
I also bought about 2 pounds of small yellow crook necked squash.
Can I tell you I am going to miss buying my veggies from the roadside. I think I have a couple more weeks until he closes shop.
