|Beautiful assortment of tomatoes: Canned, Yellow, Beefsteak and Sun Dried
Summer is tomato time in the south. Before, I even enjoyed eating tomatoes, I recall my mom, aunt and grandmother, gushing over the delicious tomatoes from the garden. These tomatoes were always on my grandmother’s dinner table, simply peeled and sliced on a plate. Nothing more, nothing less. Sadly, I did not appreciate these garden delicacies at the time. It would be many years later before I comprehended the love of a home grown tomato, and how different it was from the unfortunate tasteless orbs on display year round at my local supermarket.
