Our production seems to be outpacing the losses from shoplifting by the varmints.

…apparently, for a better supermarket tomato.  I’ll believe when I taste it.

Missing: Tomatoes.  A lot of tomatoes.

Suspect:  The usual suspects.

Due to some rather draconian firearm  laws in my town, I can’t deal with the tomato thieves the way I’d like.  So far, the squirrels have out-consumed the family to a ratio of about 3 to 1.

However, if I lived in the city I’d be dealing with a whole other class of thieves.



All Tarted Up

Too many tomatoes, what a chore! NOT!

Primo and The Principessa made this wonderful tart on Saturday



A Win. And Many, Many Losses

Arrived home from a week at the lake to discover complete devastation of the tomatoes.  Not really sure what kind of varmint we’re dealing with but a varmint for sure.  Half-eaten tomatoes strewn around the back yard, both beautifully ripe and green.  I guess the varmint ran out of ripe tomatoes mid-week.

 

This tomato was the only one left undamaged and close to ripe.  But it needed at least another day (and probably two) so I left it on the vine.  Came out this morning to find one tiny bite taken out of it. Curses! Foiled!

And so far it’s the heavyweight winner, even with a we bit removed.  2 lbs. 5/8 ounces.

Tonight we’ll have our first pasta sauce of the season from our own tomatoes. A simple Pomodoro I think.
