You say tomato......


You'd stop and buy some, right? I need to make salsa or something this weekend, soon there will be way too many tomatoes, even with selling some. Although I rarely ever sell out. I should advertise more. Perhaps don a tomato costume and hang out at the closest intersection.





















And my new favorite flower that I will grow forever and forever for always. Tithonia (Mexican sunflower). Tall. Orange. Robust. Loved by Butterflies. Drought Resistant. Yes, its an annual, but man, totally worth it. I wonder if it will self seed like other sunflowers. I highly recommend it.

I would totally stop and buy tomatoes from a big, smiling organic tomato (well... if I didn't grow any of my own).

Beautiful sunflower... it kind of looks like a zinnia (well, same family).

Wow! What a beautiful spread! Of course, I never have cash on me, so I probably wouldn't stop. But that does make me want to try my hand at growing maters this fall. All the salsa I can stand, baby!

Hmmmmm....the Fed-ex cost to ship would make these some pretty expensive tomatoes. The little tiny yellow ones are a best seller. They are really sweet. I'm hoping somebody bought the blackberries today, cause they probably won't last til tomorrow and I'm getting kind of sick of them. Chickens like them though.

Wish I was there to tomato shop! That photo is great, too. Have you made salsa? I hope to next year.

My mom used to freeze bags of tomatoes and peppers together, when she had too many. But yours are just too pretty to eat any way but fresh.

I've discovered that Monarchs loooove tithonia so it is a must-grow in my yard too! They do self-seed another big plus for me. And if you grow the "Torch" variety, they get really bushy and tall and act as a great screen if you have less than desirable neighbors like I do!

Oh my do I have undesirable neighbors. Tithonia would have to be soundproof and poisonous to effectively screen those people.

I do need to make salsa or something very soon. I will probably freeze some as well. Maybe I will try sun-drying some as well. I've never done that.
