I haven't picked in about 10 days ~ too much to do and too little time to do it in. And, let's face it. We're at the end of the tomato growing season up here in Cincinnati. So I didn't pay too much attention to the plants.
And by "not too much attention" I really mean none. I didn't water. I didn't weed. I didn't even look at the plants.And I wouldn't have looked at them today either. Until I heard the weather forecast.
We're going to have a light frost tonight.For those of us who are thermostatically challenged, frost is our friend! I welcome the frost! I embrace the frost! I long for the day we average a high of 45°.
But enough about my hot flashes.
Did I mention I hadn't picked in about 10 days?
Well. I had tomatoes out the ying yang. Perfectly formed, big juicy, red, ripe tomatoes. In fact, there were 65 of them!
And today is October 18th. Unbelievable!So I'll be making a batch of my world~famous spicy tomato sauce. A big batch.
But not for a few days. I still have to finish a website for a client, prep food for a video shoot, change from summer to winter clothes ~ yes, I'm still wearing shorts but we discussed that little temperature problem, as well as take care of my clients this week, talk to a new potential client who wants food 2x a week and conduct a cooking class.
I'll be lucky if I have time to share a glass with Bacchus this week.
Oh wait. There's always time for Bacchus.
