“A world without tomatoes is like a string quartet without violins.”
Laurie Colwin, Home Cooking
I can’t help it. I love tomatoes. When I see them taking shape in the garden I get very excited. In fact, I yelp, eyeing the gems. It used to be that other things caught my fancy. Shopping at Nordstrom’s, for example. I still like shopping at Nordstrom’s, now usually twice a year (who would have thought?), but the sight of tomatoes about to happen, well, I am pure ecstatic. A different kind of obsession, no doubt, but hopefully, a healthier one.
Spring is definitely in the air. The tomatoes, the peppers, all are on the verge of explosion. More to plant, but I am definitely tasting the salad. I am a happy person. Watching vegetables grow is a miracle to me. Eating them is even better.
