New Flavah

Work has been busy.  I was late coming home Saturday afternoon, and so I called.  Anna was at ballet, Anthony was working on the solar panels, so Colin answered the phone.  That is still a new thing in our house, kids answering the phone.  Colin is particularly precious.

After we established where everyone was, I asked him what he was doing.  "Making my lunch," he said.  That boy is always hungry.  What are you making?  "A sandwich.  It's raisin bread, and butter, and those round red things, you know?"  Um, no, you mean strawberries?  "No, Mommy, those round things, you know, that are red, they are like, you put them on, um, you know..."

After a few more minutes of this, he remembered what they are called.  Pepperoni.

"You are making a raisin bread and pepperoni sandwich?" I asked.

"Yes, Mommy, I made a new flavor," he said.  "It's delicious."

Lookee here

Its the first tomato of the season!  A Porter, a small, pinkish, reliable producer.

I picked this one on May 1, 2011.  It was 91 degrees.  A few minutes later, a cold front came through, and it plunged to 66.  Today it was rainy and cold, in the 50s all day.  I loved it -- we need the rain, and I opened up the windows to air out the house.

Still, a tomato, already!  Eat your heart out, Colorado and Maine!  (jk!)
