Oh boy, oh boy oh boy!! Hidden among the green leaves of my dads tomato plant is the first red, ripe juicy tomato of the year! This year has been a challenge since I’ve been sick, I can no longer take care of a garden so dad planted an extra one for me. I’ll nab it and play dumb..I don’t know what happened to the tomato dad! Then I’ll burp, he’ll say “Julie, that’s not very lady like” then he will say “Hmmm, now I know where the tomato went!” But not to worry, there are tons of green ones getting ready so we will have plenty! I live next to my parents so it is very nice that we can share fresh fruit and vegetables! Mom taught me to can when I was young, there is nothing better than opening a jar of tomatoes for chili in the winter. Yum!
