A Moment of Gardener's Zen

I did a beautiful thing last night. I walked out into the yard at dusk, went back to the garden and picked a few red grape tomatoes and a few yellow pear tomatoes. The plants smelled great and the tiny tomatoes practically jumped off the plants into my hand. I brought them inside, sliced them up, and put them on two sandwiches for Doug and I. I have been waiting for days like this for a long time now. These are the days when I can eat a handful of tomatoes grown by my own hands. It feels good.

I am glad that someone is harvesting. Here in Western Pennsylvania, my garden is just not doing anything at all. Here is is the end of August and I have had about 5 big tomatoes and maybe 10 cherry tomatoes. There are few simple pleasures that rate up with eating a sun warmed, just picked tomato! Enjoy.
