The Peace of the Tomato Extravaganza It’s that time of year! Well, of course it is; it’s the Full Ripe Garden Moon. Gardens are bursting! Strangers are accosting strangers with handfuls of fabulous tomatoes. Friends are gifting friends. It’s all pretty wonderful. (Well, at least for me, since I don’t have a garden! No fuss about what to do with the extra tomatoes, no weeding in the heat, and fabulous summer goodness to layer on salads or pile on a sandwich!) Friends are sending pics of their elaborate canning set ups. Trying to keep up! I think there’s a message in here for us, and that’s to take advantage of the abundance. Eat too many tomatoes, melons, peaches. Sit on the porch with a fan. Enjoy yourselves. Tomatoes may be bursting out all over, but they aren’t ripe on the vine forever. Enjoy the Peace.
