What we do for tomatoes

The things we do for tomato plants...

Untitled

First, we suffer through getting up early on Saturday morning to drive to Tomatomania in Ojai.
Due to being rushed, we EVEN have to eat breakfast in the car.
(Yogurt parfaits made with greek yogurt, homemade granola and fresh berries)

Untitled

We have to labor over decisions about which ones to buy
(and wait for friends to pick out their choices)

Untitled

We have to pose on scooters we are too afraid smart enough not to ride

Untitled

But we have to take LOTS of pictures of our husbands before they DID ride...

We have to go olive oil tasting and bring these home

Later, we have to eat at Boccali's with dear friends we've had for over 30 years...and on a day that they had their famous strawberry shortcakes (such suffering!)


(we did share these with our hubbies)

Oh, the things we go through just to get a few tomato plants!!

I was so sad to hear about all that suffering. No smiles that day. Maybe a trip to WA will help. ;-)
