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?

I think this is one of my all-time favorites of your childhood stories. I could just see the whole thing in my mind! Oh, I'd get such awful canker sores if I ate that many tomatoes! It sure made my mouth water to think of them, though. The Cherokee Purple picture in particular made me hungry. Those are my favorites!

It was all your images in the Database that inspired the memory, Angie! Thank you!

Thankfully tomatoes never bothered me, no matter how many I ate.
