Life is good and full and here are some things we have enjoyed in August:
Rhubarb Black Bird Pie
And our first tomatoes!
A ruby red tomato is hanging on the vine.
If my mother didn't want it, the tomato would be mine.
It smells of rain and steamy earth and hot June sun.
In the whole tomato garden it's the only ripe one.
by Rosemary Wells
Our tomatoes feel like such a treat because they are hard to grow in this Northern climate. Where we used to live, we would have an overabundance of tomatoes all Summer long, but here we savour each one that manages to ripen.
