LOVE them 'maters! The big red ones are Patio, the orangey-yellow ones are Lemon Boy and the little tiny ones are Texas Wild. The TX Wild are yummy and sweet ~ great in salads becase they're bite sized ~ you won't have to cut them in half and shoot juice across the room.
Now if all those Yellow Pears would just turn from green pears into gold...
Ah the joys of "matering" Your picture looked so scrumpious I ran out to the garden and showed it to my maters so they would hurry up and get with the program. We are just now getting in ripe Stupice, Sungolds, and Windowbox. Life is Good!!! LOL
Oh, Melody! If I could, I'd send you some in the mail! I was thinking about you today. Kenny and I went into town and noticed that the Tomato Honor Stand was open, a place where you can stop and pick up some tomatoes even when the owners aren't there. You just get what you want and they trust you to leave your money in the box. They had a table full of big red tomatoes! But these aren't the kind that would survive mailing to Kentucky. :(
I have lots of green 'maters, but no ripe ones yet. My dad & mom lived out west & I was telling them on the phone about my 'maters (this was about 15 years ago)& my dad said "Oh what I've give for some home grown 'maters". I got a sturdy box & packed 6 'maters & UPSd them to him. The called me & said the --Ag Dept was after me, but that the 'maters were the best he ever had. He said only 1 got smashed a little. I had packed some sturdy packing in around them. He only lived a few years after that & that is one of the best memories I have of doing something for him.
