It's hard to believe it's mid-May and we are enjoying the fruit of our labor. And would my Northern friends be jealous to see that I'm already harvesting vine ripe tomatoes in
my garden, my mom's garden? And Miss Sophie's Pappa al Pomodoro recipe couldn't come at a better time. Let's read about how she procured this simple but beautiful recipe while on her recent vacation.
Steve, the girls (our dogs) and I recently returned from our annual week vacation at Seabrook Island on John’s Island, S.C. We’ve rented the same condominium at Pelican’s Watch for the past three years.......
Ever so tenderly my mom is growing these beautiful tomatoes. green onions, and herbs.
