    real tomatoes and fresh strawberries

    This is the time of the year when I get to eat real tomatoes, you know, the ones right off the vine and super tasty. The tomatoes that can really make a BLT shine, real flavor and deep color. New potatoes are fixed in many ways and I like them all. We have to protect the garden from all the critters but the rewards are worth it. As a kid, fresh strawberries out of the garden with a big slice of yellow cake was mighty good but got even better with ice cream. As an old fart, they are still mighty fine table fare. Of course a real strawberry milkshake is hard to beat too. While this is something that many of us take for granted, many don't know what they are missing and I wish that they could find out. It's the simple things in life that can be so good contrary to what the fast foodies may think. sorry, already ate the BLT. only thing better would be with homemade ice cream. pretty good eats after detecting for several hours.

    Homemade bread with fresh strawberries and cream at the in-law's farm!

    If I have to go, I tell my wife to have them ensure enough for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Simple pleasure like that then a rum on the rocks with a good cigar. Heaven in the moment.

    Gave up on strawberries, my competition was too tough. But the blueberries are just about ripe and in a few weeks I will start picking everbearing raspberries and continue through October. I don't do much other gardening due to said critters except for a big patch of leeks which no one except me is interested in.

    The other night of internet roaming I came upon a site (can't remember where) about tomatoes and how to shock your friends. Take a couple of unripe tomatoes, punch some dime size holes in a piece of aluminum foil and wrap them up tight. Put on a window sill for a week and when you remove the foil you will have poke-a-dot tomatoes.

    My tomatoes are small and green, and no strawberries yet. I live in Connecticut.

    SusanMN, the blueberries are out here. See them everywhere. Wife sent me out for strawberries and whipped cream and it is gone so out again for more. Get them while available then on to whatever is next. Check the farmer's market to see what is available too.

    Home Gardening? Is that available at the grocery store? LOL I was reading an article today that says 14% of the US population thinks that chocolate milk comes from Brown Cows! The article attributed this to the greater population not ever knowing where food comes from e.g. From the grocery store! Unbelievable. Our southern California climate with the complete lack of snow or winter makes for some incredible Tomatoes and strawberries. Blue berries are very tough and forget cranberries or goose berries. The tomatoes get bigger than softballs! I am not really sure how they taste though. For the last three years my Golden Retriever has defeated all methods to protect them. I watch them ripen to perfection and the next day they are gone. He breaks in and eats every last one of them, but not until they are perfectly ripe and ready. The first year I thought it was the neighbor until I caught the dog red handed. He would rather eat a fresh tomatoe than a steak.

    my grandfather had five huge gardens, one of which was his prized strawberries. We had strawberry freezer jam all the time, I could my weight in biscuits and jam back then. One of my uncles got the place and it is now a thicket, so sad.
