One of Life's Little Pleasures. :)

While heading out to the grain bin to get a bucket of feed for the hens, I found this lone tomato vine hanging over the garden fence...
I have already picked and canned all of my tomatoes, even the green ones.
I have no idea how I missed this vine, but I'm so glad I did. :)















I took myself, my fresh tomato and my salt shaker back outside to enjoy dinner and the sunset. My kind of fine dining. :)

good post, I really miss my farmer's market crop, and envy your skills.

Wish me luck, gonna dig out my frozen leftover pulled pork tonight and cook your recipe for pulled pork in a bun from a couple days ago... if it works, will blog about it soon - with proper credit of course

It's a good thing the birds missed them too! Are those heirlooms?

Nice find Jeanie. I don't think those tomatoes would have looked quite as healthy at my place mid Nov. Mine are all gone. I ate them all except the occasional thrower.

I don't know how you missed those tomatoes either, Boy do they look good. But I can't help think it's a little cannibalistic. I mean on tomato eating another.

Thank you A Year on the Grill!
Hope the pork buns turn out well for you. I usually get around 9 buns out of that dough recipe.

I'll check for your blog pics. :)

Thanks!

JB, you're right! The birds could have eaten the tomatoes before I found them. I couldn't believe my luck, they were ripe and just waiting for me. :)

I planted several varieties of tomatoes this year, I'll check to see which kind these were.
Thanks JB. :)

Rocco, the tomato was just right... I really enjoyed my meal and the evening. :)

Thanks!

Mark, I'm glad to hear you were able to enjoy the last tomatoes from your plants. Looked like you had quite a few!
I've got a few peppers and leeks to pick yet. No snow here like what you have, but I'm still pushing my luck with the peppers.
Thanks Mark!

The tomato really did taste good. Not sure how I missed them before but I'm so glad I did!!
Thanks marc!

Hi Jeanie, I've only been following your blog for a couple of weeks but I have spent a great deal of time in your archives and visit daily to check on things. Today's post struck a chord with me. We try so hard to control our lives and plan for this and that but seldom take the time to sit on the porch and truly enjoy the unexpected pleasures that come our way. Thank you for reminding me today that there are also flowers in the flower bed, not just weeds. I love your blog. Thanks again.

Bob, I'm happy to hear my post struck a cord with you! You are so right, there are flowers in the bed, not just weeds.
I am a firm believer that the finer things in life are free... you just have to stop and take the time to see them.

Thank you for checking out my blog and for stopping by.
It's nice to meet you Bob. :)

Howdy Cowgirl, my taste buds are anxious for turkey, turkey and turkey. How aboub some tips of making a smoked turkey? I've never tried but figured I'd come to the best cooking source I know.

Thanks
Wayne

cowgirl said...

lol Rawtalent.... I like that! :)
Thanks!

cowgirl said...

Hi Wayne!! I'm planning on smoking another spatchcocked turkey in my drum..
Will brine the bird first and add smoked sausage under the skin for added flavor.

There should be a couple posts about them here.. I'll look.

Hope you have a nice weekend!
