Seriously-- Zucchini! I wish I had more neighbors who gardened. I've recently discovered that I love home-grown tomatoes. Never liked what can be had in a store (even "heirloom" tomatoes at WFM!): they all taste like yuck. No flavor, wrong texture and picked too green. Then my Bro-in-law served some heirloom tomatoes from their garden and I was blown away at how wonderful they were. At first I thought it was the heirloom part...but no-- it was that these tomatoes were picked ripe from the garden just a few hours previous.

For those so interested, it turns out there is a great book about this called Tomatoland: How Modern Industrial Agriculture Destroyed Our Most Alluring Fruit that is both depressing and fascinating. Before fresh tomatoes I thought they were only good for ketchup and spaghetti sauce.

Wow-- veered off-topic! Happy Z-Day! (<--not zombies or Zoie, for better or worse...)
