Summertime tomato talk

By Kylee Baumle

Midsummer has arrived, and with it, the beginning of the harvest of true summer fruits and vegetables. These edibles love the hot weather and won’t bolt like those early bird fans of cool spring would.

If there’s one vegetable that nearly every gardener grows, it’s the tomato. That’s not to say that everyone loves tomatoes though. I know this will be shocking to many of you, but I’m not a fan of a ripe, juicy, fresh tomato from the garden.

I also know that my distaste for fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes is looked upon as a character flaw, but I have to tell you that I simply do not care. That, of course, means more fresh tomatoes for the rest of you!
