My good blogging buddy Susan over at e-i-e-i-omg! posted a picture of one of her MONSTER Old German heritage tomatoes this morning. Well done, Gardening Maven! I haven't seen a tomato like that since my grandpa grew 'maters for all of his seven children's families (yes, he did) in the 40s, 50s and 60s. And the flavor of those old heritage varieties cannot be surpassed.
This seemed like a good time for me to brag that *I* can grow big things in my garden, too.
WA-hoo, get a load of them zucchinis!
I purposely let these guys grow and grow and grow since we had our fill of that rampantly growing veggie long ago. (Ooops, sorry, Susan, I meant to say v-e-g-e-t-a-b-l-e rather than veggie. Forgive me.)
Okay, you guys know I'm just trying to be funny in comparing zucchinis to tomatoes. (I mean would YOU want to eat a BLZ sandwich??) There IS no comparison to a home grown tomato as just about anyone (even those of us way up here in the northern reaches) can grow zucchinis but surely not everyone can grow (I sure can't) humongous, luscious, prized tomatoes as Susan does.
