Homegrown

Homegrown

Here it is, everyone: three months of work rolled up into a juicy red tomato. I just stood there and ate almost the whole thing (I didn’t eat the whole thing because Maddie stood by me and ate the rest).

My dad used to tell me about eating homegrown tomatoes from his grandpa’s garden when he was a kid. He said he would eat them like apples. I never believed that because I thought tomatoes were nasty.

But these? These are not nasty. I just stood there and ate it like an apple. I can’t wait to do it again.
