Sweet Musings with a Bitterly Sharp Wit

Home Grown Tomatoes


“A world without tomatoes is like a string quartet without violins.”
Laurie Colwin, Home Cooking

“It’s difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato.”
Lewis Grizzard

“A cooked tomato is like a cooked oyster: ruined.”
Andre Simon, The Concise Encyclopedia of Gastronomy

“Home grown tomatoes, home grown tomatoes
What would life be like without homegrown tomatoes
Only two things that money can’t buy
That’s true love and home grown tomatoes.”
John Denver, Home Grown Tomatoes

  1. Some of my sweetest childhood memories are of picking tomatoes out of my grandparents garden and eating them right there.


  2. Your pictures are beautiful and I’m admiring you for having your own grown tomatoes in your garden!


  3. I love tomatoes fresh from the garden. Unfortunately, we do not get enough sun on our forested property to produce good tomatoes. The local farmers market is the next best thing.


  4. Home grown is alright with me…

    What beautiful photographs and what lovely quotes. Brava!


  5. Just about to start planting out seed for our own homegrown tomatoes this year. LOVE those weird ovoid ones!


  6. Can’t wait until ours start ripening. When I get home, it will be time to make some pesto. Can tomatoes be far behind? I think not.



  7. What beautiful photos. I wait for summer all year long, mostly for the tomatoes.


  8. I never understand people who don’t like tomatoes- they’re so versatile (although I’m not much of a fan of tomato sauce). Love these shots.


  9. 😄 A lovely ode to the wonderful tomato! Cool pics! 😊


  10. Loving these photos! Great shots. How’re I a super jealous as I cannot find an heirloom tomato in HK


  11. What stunning shots of these tomatoes :D

  12. We were so glad to meet you at the Farm last Sunday at our First Tomato Tasting – your Tomato Cupcakes were a huge hit! Hope to see more of you at Ambler Farm!


  13. Yup, there’s no way, no how, I can ever go back to eating a supermarket tomato ever again. Awesome photos as always. :-)
