A TOMATO CONFESSION




I have a confession about my home grown tomatoes. They are home grown but are not vine ripened. I got maybe a total of ten tomatoes off my vines during the whole past summer but come cooler weather they started producing little green tomatoes. I wrapped those, along with the ones my brother in law gave me, individually in newspapers and have them setting in a window of the cool attic. Every few days I check to see which ones have ripened. I expect I will have a few for Christmas dinner.

  3. Yummmmm.... real ripe tomatoes for Christmas. Not like those old 'cardboard' tomatoes you buy in the stores in the wintertime. Yuck.
