Monday memories.

Only vegetables are happy ~ William Faulkner.

We bought our land for the views ~ not the soil. The soil is clay & ironstone & it sets harder than cement.

It has taken years of mulching, clay~breaker & fertilizer to get soil that will produce tomatoes & beans. I am picking enough beans for dinner every second day & a dozen or so tomatoes every day. We can't eat them fast enough. God is good.

Ah, fresh tomatoes. I have bags and bags of tomatoes I froze from my wonderful garden bounty. Enjoy your vegetables and think of me once in a while as I freeze myself over the winter.

Your island is *so* pretty :-)

Ha, one of these years, I will stop saying I want to grow something and actually try it out. :-P

Sandra: I thought of you as I wrote this;) We are cooking here & you are about to freeze. Such an odd, odd world.

The island is so pretty is it any wonder I never want to leave it ~ not even so my Ditz can sing like a canary.

Go on! You know you want to grow tomatoes like mine! ☺

Delish! Our tomatoes are only at the flowering stage as yet but soon...soon! Enjoy!

Jan Lyn said...

And what a view at that--beautiful!

Britwife said...

Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.

However, I've had my fill of tomatoes for awhile, thank you very much.

The view is really something ~ the soil something else entirely!

The tomatoes have sooo much flavour. Mmmmm...
