The Last of the Tomatoes

A huge storm blew through last night and took our last tomato plant.  This is bad news for a couple reasons.  First of all, homegrown tomatoes are better than anything you'll ever buy in a store.  Blech.  The thought of hydroponic tomatoes, probably grown in a factory, puts an awful taste in my mouth.  Or no taste in my mouth.  Awful!

Another reason that losing our tomato plant leaves me melancholy, is that tomatoes are a sign of summer.  Without tomatoes on our windowsill, I'm reminded that summer won't last.  To me, that's one of the most saddening thoughts.

Let's take this in a happier direction.  How about a top ten list?  Top Ten Ways to Eat Tomatoes!
