Guy Clark had it right. There’s nothing in the world better than a home grown tomato. Nothing.
We have in our office a wonderful tomato fairy. She brings us bags of tomatoes throughout the summer. Tomatoes of all types find their way into our office, and our tummies, thanks to the hard work of an employee and her family, and their tomato plants’ generous over production.
I don’t know how far back my love of tomatoes goes, but I can remember eating tomato and mayo sandwiches before I was 10.
