The Tomato Thief

Today's Harvest

Stop laughing! You try growing heirloom tomatoes in a high mountain garden. The mere fact that some grew has the Guinness Book of Tomato Records trying to set up an interview with me.
Sweet neighbor kid?
Or, hardened criminal?

Sure, my tomatoes are ugly. They're heirlooms. They're supposed to be ugly. Besides, looks can be deceiving. Wendy is cute as a button but she's also a tomato thief and a repeat offender, at that. Today I caught her red-handed.

"How many times do I have to tell you? Steal the zucchini! It's all yours! Just keep your cute little mitts off my heirlooms."

Fresh & Tasty Bruschetta
Brush sourdough bread slices with olive oil and toast in the oven.
  1. Dice some fresh from the garden tomatoes
  2. Sprinkle with minced garlic, basil leaves and the chopped tops of fresh green onions
  3. Add a little lemon juice for zippy flavor.
Spread this marvelous concoction on the toasted sourdough bread and enjoy a little slice of heaven.

Knowing what I do about heirlooms, I think your tomatoes are absolutely gorgeous, and I bet delicious, too. (and your tomato thief is gorgeous, by the way!)
