It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year ....

In case you didn't know it, that's the title of a Christmas Song.  I think I sang it at least a million times when I was a kid.  It somehow made the program list every single year during Holiday Season, which did not make me happy at all -- the song that is.  It wasn't my favorite.

I was singing it today though, at the end of July, and it didn't have anything to do with winter holidays.  It's because of this . . . .

I LOVE tomato season.   There are few things better than a BLT on homemade bread with a home grown tomato.  It's the best part of summer.

I like them with a hint of Gorgonzola or goat cheese, and a pinch of Basil.  Double Yum.  You should try it that way.

Sadly, the Topsy Turvey was not as miraculous as it appeared on television.  But ended up not mattering because my insanely talented gardening friends the Barbours gave me some of their harvest; thee most beautiful tomatoes I have ever seen or tasted for that matter.

I am not joking when I tell you that Scott Barbour planted 100 TOMATO PLANTS.  One hundred!  No wonder they are giving away tomatoes!

I haven't been in their back yard yet, but I'm imagining Little Shop of Horrors.

Come to think of it, I haven't seen them since they gave me the tomatoes . . . . I better send Matt over to check on them.

Oh, how I love the tomatoes too! :) My sandwich usually has tomatoes and avocados on it.
