WHAT’S IN YOUR GARDEN?
It’s officially summertime. I know this because my kids are out of school, and running amuck. I wish they wouldn’t run that way, but again it’s summertime and children are allowed and even encouraged to be nutty in hot weather. At least I think that was what my mom used to say. She liked summer, liked seeing us outside and getting into trouble – the sweet, non-threatening, stay outa jail kind of trouble. After breakfast, she would send us outside where everything was conducive to amuck running: lots of old appliance boxes to make forts, a creek, old clothes for costumes, and a garden to plant and to pick from.
I remember planting all sorts of veggies with my mom and sisters: beans, peppers, tomatoes, rhubarb - watering it and watching it grow - then running to the house three doors down and stealing their cherry tomatoes which were already ripe and plentiful. (ahhh, summertime thievery.. the memories.. yeah, I know, so much for non-threatening, stay outa jail fun..)
The summer sun in Southern California makes things grow quickly, and plentiful. Still, the taste of those tomatoes is never the same as the ones we grew back when I was a kid in Minnesota.
Hmmm..maybe I need to run to the neighbors and steal a few?
