As it is for everyone, the month of July always seems to be a busy month. Vacation plans, summer gardening and big ideas for all kinds of home projects. If even a fraction of the plans come to fruition I'll call it good. Today I was thinking of the phrase 'summer tomatoes'. My tomatoes weren't able to get into the ground until late May, so this year I'm dreaming of fall tomatoes.
