My Little Tomato Lover


Dear Universe,

I would like to thank you for giving me a child who loves raw tomatoes. I know she may change her mind, but right now her asking for something that I actually managed to grow myself makes me really really happy. I think she's going through another growth spurt (based on her eating everything in site) and the tomatoes have got to be helping at least a little.

Thanks,

A. Sprout

Yummy, I love fresh tomato slices. Always have, never grew out of it so there's hope for her too.

how wonderful, I didn't like fresh tomatoes or a lot of fresh veggies til I grew them as an adult. You always liked the peppers, peas, and beans straight off the plants in the garden. you taught the younger ones what was good. Glad you go M and the garden.
love,
your mom

Boo is the same way. We keep a bowl on the counter for her to munch on during the day. She would eat them non-stop if we let her

My kid asks for the grape tomatoes from 'Daddy's Garden.' She won't eat any other tomatoes but she looooves to pick and eat what is growing in the yard. I remember that from my youth also.

It is heartwarming for sure.
