It's summer!

I have big tomatoes. Huge. No clue what variety I planted, but they are huge. The first red one came almost two weeks ago. Now I just have huge, beautiful green ones. So in honor of the green-ness of these fresh tomatoes, I fried them. Smoked up the whole downstairs. Yum. If I had been thinking, I would have taken pictures to immortalize them, they were that good.

Also in honor of summer, Hokiehubby managed to get ahold of 8 cantelopes for $2. Sugar. Very ripe. He used 2 at the fire station. We gave 2 to my mom and I took one to a friend. The four of us managed to consume one at dinner last night, and this morning I had to refrigerate the last 2. The kitchen is so warm and the melons ended up with soft spots overnight. This is a bummer. I'm not a huge fan of refrigerated fruit. I prefer it closer to (cool) room temperature. I think it's sweeter and closer to its natural taste.

MS3 is about halfway through clue 4. Clue 4 was a double clue and I'm about to start the second set of charts. I'm loving the way it's coming out, but I'm not sure what to do with it once it's done. I'll want to show it off, but how? Sigh.

I am SO stinkin jealous of your tomatoes and cantelopes! Where I live, it will be awhile before tomatoes are ready for eating, and we do NOT have great cantelope here, as we used to have when we lived in Gloucester, VA.
I'm drooling for the Fried green tomatoes!
I'm getting ready to send your first package...and hope you stay cool down South!
