Dear Family & Friends
After the great summer heat...tomatoes are just popping up everywhere in our garden. There's buckets upon buckets that we have harvested. We've eaten a lot of it as snacks and also took the advantage of preserving them. The freezer is filling up so fast...Guaranteed no famine around here!

Most of the cherry tomato plants are volunteers. In our village, everyone grows tomatoes but they prefer the big tomato types. Once I invited a local friend to help herself with the cherry tomatoes in our garden and she asked me if they will still grow any bigger?!...she never had cherry tomatoes ever!

Tomatoes are the easiest plant to grow...they do very well with the proper summer heat which they love...We are seasonal eaters...at this time of the year, it's so lovely to have pasta dish with a generous amount of very rich tomato sauce, with lots of fresh herbs...yes, lots of them because that's always 'guaranteed goodness'.
There are times I do get tired of harvesting, washing and processing garden goods, but I must and should always be grateful for it. I am grateful that I have this opportunity and my family shares the joy with great contentment.
Here's hoping that you have the abundance in life to enjoy ... I wish you all good things in life too:)
