The Summer of Stolen Tomatoes

By Sharon
June 20, 2012

They were only little tomato plants, each no more than two or three inches tall. I carefully dug two of them from the family garden and transplanted them to my own private garden hidden behind the playhouse. After all, who would ever miss two little tomato plants?

Did I take you right back to my playhouse in the mountains, Pippi? I hope so. And did it make you crave tomatoes?

I have lots of fun memories and I love sharing them. Thanks so much.
