In the Garden-Tomatoes

"It's difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts
while eating a homegrown tomato"
-Lewis Grizzard

Pommes D'Amour

For more of his work see below

We've anxiously watched our tomatoes swell...

soak up the sunshine

and finally ripen

My picker and our harvest

Ripening in the kitchen window...

above my "tomato-orange" sink!

"Don't bend over in the garden, Granny,
you know them taters got eyes"

Title of bestselling book by the late southern humorist, 
#1 University of Georgia fan, and author Lewis Grizzard

Hope you are enjoying fresh tomatoes and good books this summer
