Thursday's Simple Pleasures...a variety of the same
I don't even like tomatoes, except once in awhile in a salad---I generally leave them on the plate---or in a BLT. But my husband loves them, and for two years, we've actually grown tomatoes from starts our brother-in-law planted in his greenhouse. (He doesn't eat tomatoes, either!) We had 4 different plants, each a different variety, in pots against the south side of the house and fenced off against the 'town' deer. Spring was late, and so were the tomatoes, but once they started to grow, I enjoyed seeing the changes and seeing that first little green globe.
All this week, the night-time temperatures have been in the 20's. The tomato 'cage' is covered with a sheet each night, but the plants won't last much longer. Every other day, my husband goes out and gathers as many ripe ones as he can. Today, needing any kind of 'simple pleasure' possible, I photographed the latest harvest and played with photographic effects. These are my "Simple Pleasures" for Dayle's great blog.
