Around the place
I have some tomatoes, fairly large ones. They aren't pretty, but at least I have some for now The splits are caused by all the excess rain we've had. I expect to have no tomatoes at all, a week from now, because the blight is spreading fast. Several plants are already dead, having given me no tomatoes larger than walnuts. There are two local places where, hopefully, I can buy decent tomatoes after mine are gone: Frye Farms at Buckner (no website) and Fahrmeier Farms (a lousy website); they also have a winery.
I used the last eggplant off my counter last night to make Meesha's eggplant salsa/caviar. This time I added 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper; one of my better ideas.
