I use them to make homemade salsa, tho. I have to cook my salsa, tho. Whatever compound in them that makes them taste bad to me breaks down when they are cooked, which is why I like tomato sauce and things of that nature, but not raw uncooked tomatoes.
It sucks that I'm not getting much. I put a lot of work into it. I even put in an irrigation system, which I didn't need at all this year. I am starting to get some butternut squash, tho, which I love.
My mouth is watering...tomatoes, homemade salsa...

Oh that is a shame though. I hope the squash makes up for it!

The ride was awesome. Saturday we started out with a cloudy morning. Couldn't see the sunrise. Had a great group to ride with. It took us 4 hours to drive across the state to Florida's west coast. Had an awesome time. Parked our bikes at the hotel, everything was in walking distance. Didn't see our bikes until it was time to head home. Coming home we hit some really nasty weather. Pulled along the side of the road and all suited up with rain gear.

Minutes from our house, my hubby and I were riding along the inter-coastal waterway. Off the corner of our eyes we saw a bike go over the edge. I immediately jumped off the bike even before hubby stopped it. I ran like I've never run before,(my legs are sore today). The bike was wrapped around a telephone pole and the two riders were at the bottom of the 20-30 foot drop. As I'm sliding down the embankment the male rider was climbing up. The left side of his face was so messed up. The female rider still on her back at the bottom. She started to sit up, her left arm was mangled. Got her to her feet and she asked about her bike. I just told her "who cares about your bike, your alive and standing". I managed to get her up the embankment where she goes on to tell me how drunk she is. I WAS LIVID!!! Driving drunk and with no helmets! IDIOTS!!!!! Had it been 20 feet in either direction of where they went over, they would have landed on rocks and not grass. They would have been killed. Livid, is not the word I can describe how I felt at that time. Thankfully, today they are alive, but I am sure that they are feeling extremely sore. Hopefully, this will be a reminder for them to NEVER DRINK AND DRIVE!!

These riders didn't know the reason why our club did this sunrise to sunset ride. We did in memory of my nephew Michael, 21 years old, who was killed in August of 2011. He was a rider just like us, a doctor was texting and driving and took her eyes off the road for 2 seconds and instantly killed my nephew. Four words no family wants to hear "I didn't see him".

So you can imagine....I was more than just LIVID!!

Screened back decks are very nice around here for that reason. It was a big draw to us, when we bought our home.

Down here you at night there is so much noise from all the critters at night. It's like a symphony. I like to just sit out there sometimes

My grandmother used to pressure cook squash for hours and it was the only way I liked it as a kid, it tasted great and no one has duplicated that taste since. i miss that!

Last year we grew so many tomatoes( beef steak and cherry), I was giving them away! We don't have soil, just sand. So, I went and bought a few 50 gallon plastic barrels. We cut them long way in half and drilled a couple of holes for proper drainage. Raised them off the ground using bricks, and filled them with soil. I had eggplant, tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers.
Didn't do it this year.

I live on a canal, and at night....we have the frog symphony. I am so used to it, that now I don't really hear it. After rain, they are extremely loud. One frog starts, and the rest answer back. lol

For regular squash I like to marinade it and cook it on the grill.

For butternut, I like to slice it in half (mirror images), scoop out the seeds, put some butter and brown sugar in the depression where the seeds were, cover with the top with aluminum foil and bake in the oven, for maybe an hour and 15 to an hour and a half at 350 (until it's is really soft). It's almost like dessert. It's so good.

One of the home owners on the road, took the riders into his house. The riders were begging for everyone not to call the police. Not sure, if the police came after we left.

OMG Chris. I'm so sorry to hear about your nephew. Another reason why texting and driving should be illegal in all states.

Lost one of my favorite cousins to an automobile accident not too long ago. It makes one realize how short life really is.

We don't have very good soil down by me, either, as far as I'm concerned, either. I removed a lot of mine from my garden and augmented what was left with a lot of black earth, mulch, and peat moss.
