In the dead of winter I have a gift of summer

Remember my post from Thursday, October 22 about rescuing my tomatoes from the back yard? 

Well, these are the last of them and I am going to eat them today. Imagine! December 26th and I am going to eat tomatoes from my own garden! 

This is what they looked like when I picked them.

And they have been sitting on my kitchen counter ever since. 

One by one, They have turned a sunny yellow and yes, I have eaten them!

As I pop each one into my mouth, I close my eyes and days of sunshine and warmth flow back into my mind's eye and I am able to bask in summer's goodness and glory!

I'm so glad I rescued these little tomatoes!


  1. How lovely to have a little taste of summer without canning those little tomatoes! Yum! Hope you had a great Christmas Day, eating your rescued tomatoes.

  2. I've never seen tomatoes shaped like those before.

  3. Love the taste of summer in December!

  4. I just finished the last of my same tomatoes, but balcony grown in a where near your bumper crop but still lots to start with...Thanks for coming to my blog and sharing in the trials and tribs of Canadian retirement, puns, winters...not that we can even be said to have winters, comparing Ont and BC..


I can only be better from your comments...thanks!
