They Didn't Ask Me


Ah... the first Dr. Phil Tomato Sandwich of the year. Yum. Alas, Mrs. Dr. Phil only bought the one tomato and let it sit all week to ripen, one has to make sure they're ready, so I can't just start off a week of tomato sandwiches every day. (sad-grin) Can't EVEN have the 2nd half of the 1st tomato tomorrow -- I did share the wealth with Mrs. Dr. Phil, after all.

2009 Tomato Sandwich Exemplar

With the long winter, late spring and relatively cool summer this year, it's been hard to gauge the growing season. The local strawberries and blueberries have been exceptional. Some very nice baby zucchini, summer squash and pickling cucumbers. I've not been on 84th Avenue for a couple weeks as they sealed the cracks and then put down a new coat of tar and stones. So the other day I was surprised to see tall corn on both sides of the road. The usual outstanding cornfields on M-45 east of 84th got planted late, so this summer they aren't yet the tallest, though they are lush.

So tomatoes will come.

Of course, I'm already ahead of last year. I didn't get my first tomato sandwich fixings brought in to Five by Mrs. Dr. Phil until into September.

Want. More. Tomato. Sandwiches.

    I'm living on borrowed time. I suppose, in a sense, we all are. But right now I'm referring to OUEST, the university's Dell laptop in my office. It's…
