Sharing Tomatoes and a New Recipe

We only have two tomato vines



are coming out our ears.

They're so delicious ...  tastes better than candy,

but then  ...  we have so many, they're spoiling right before our eyes.

Because I'm a good Wifie, 

I found 

a new recipe

that called for LOTS of tomatoes.

This recipe is from:

Chickpea and Tomato Salad

  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • About 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 25 large basil leaves, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp honey (10g)
  • pinch of salt
Toss all ingredients together and chill for at least 20 minutes, allowing all the flavors to merge.

I'm not sure if I'll make it again, 

but it served us well 

for a few


and saved

these tomatoes

from the compost bin.

PS:  I knew you were wondering if we've shared tomatoes with our neighbors...Oh Yes!  

In fact, Buzz is pretty popular these days!

Butterfly Distractions

I've been pretty neglectful lately ...

I hadn't filled the 

Bird Feeders

in days.

Poor Birdies!

When I got around to

taking care of

them today

I  was



Butterflies are Beautiful!

Happy Sunday Everyone 

Psalm 34:1 

PS:  It's been over two hours since I filled the bird feeders, and still no birdies.  That's what I get for being so neglectful.
