Also - burningest - it's my newest word. Enjoy that little nugget.
Speaking of enjoyable nuggets, though - WOULD YOU JUST GET A LOAD OF THESE:
|They're supposed to be green, you smart ass.|
Yes. In a weird turn of events, the green-when-ripe Green Giant tomatoes were the first to spring forth fully ripe from the plants. So, even though they don't look like the ripe red #1 tomatoes of previous years, they are indeed quite ripe and totally ready for feasting.
|Also, the first Gravenstein apples and a sad old lemon.|
This weekend, though, it is SO ON. I'm going to eat their effing pants off. It's going to be wild.
OK, it'll probably not be wild at all, but I will eat them and even share some with Bubba and probably the neighbors and it will be lovely. I imagine there will be some olive oil and fancy ass charcoal sea salt (it's a thing) involved and I will take photos to share with you as proof of the act itself.
Then I'll also be able to tell you whether this green-when-ripe tomato is as delicious as I was lead to believe.
And it fucking well better be because I will tell you that these are not the most satisfying tomatoes to see on the vine.
Call me traditional (that'd be a first), but I expect my tomato plants to have reddish fruits on them.
|More like it.|
Even if the fruits are more pink or purple than red, I'm OK with it, but green just sort of doesn't do it for me. My eyes need to see some color out there because right now it's a lot of green.
|Booooooooooooh-ring. Also - white trash tire potatoes.|
I guess I should just be glad that even though it seemed like the first tomato was taking FORever, we're actually only one day past last year's #1 tomato.
I get very impatient when it comes to tomato events.
OK, I get very impatient when it comes to most events. And anything that involves me standing in a line, sitting in traffic or waiting on technology to work (WHY DOES THE DVR TAKE SO LONG TO CHANGE SCREENS? UGH.)
It's not pretty, my Crazy, but there it is.
But the #1 Tomato - she's pretty. And I will eat her fucking face.
Just go on and set the countdown to 5 posts now...
Oh, and if you want me to address some burning question or topic - leave it in the comments or expect more random ass posts like this one. Your choice.
