the great tomato


i am sad to say that we have not been privi to picking our own home grown tomatoes this year. we haven't had any, not a one from our 10 + plants! we normally have a bumper crop, so much so, that we always roast and freeze them away for a summer time dish in the winter.  i think they are suffering from heat stroke like the rest of us. although, the mornings and evening are beginning to become quite pleasant again here in austin so i am hopeful to find some of these red gems appear come fall. so, if any of you out there are enjoying some home-grown and hand picked tomatoes this year have one for me!!
