    It is gorgeous! I, too, love tomatoes. I miss fresh tomatoes terribly. I’ll be starting my tomatoes from seed in the next week or so. Happiness! And, FYI, I can’t watch the Olympics without thinking of you and Mr. Chiots. :) Melissa

    That is a truly gorgeous photo! And what a nice time if year to be daydreaming of fresh garden tomatoes… Hope your day was lovely!

    love that tomato! There’s an artist who grew tomatoes into Sylvester the Cat popsicle molds as commentary on gm foods about 12 years ago; I have tried that technique to no avail!

    you’ve gotta love freakily formed vegetables. I’ve had some peculiar octopus like carrots but no toms as gorgeous and unique as that!

Remember those forsythia branches I brought inside last week to force? They're blooming and bringing a little bit of sunshine...
