'maters in the sunshine ..
does anyone do this anymore? .. sitting your tomatoes on the windowsill to fully ripen? .. my Mom and Dad both used to do this, i just started doing it recently .. i love the taste of a tomato (my father called them 'maters) ripened in the sun .. the warm juiciness coming through in the flavor .. the juice sometimes running down your wrist or spreading across your plate .. i like to sprinkle them with a little salt and pepper .. sometimes a little dill .. i love them as a side dish .. especially in the summer ..
i think everyone has grown a tomato plant at some time or another in their life .. it's the one garden item we can all grow .. easily so .. and feel connected to the earth .. the cycle .. look what i did .. i grew a tomato .. and that first taste is always the sweetest ..
may your day be filled with the sunshine your life requires ..
