Happy Grew Year!

It's January 1, 2008. We got these from our garden today before taking out the tomato plants and putting in lettuce, kohlrabi, kale, arugula, chard, parsley. Winter in Santa Barbara.

Nonetheless, INOTBB wishes all of you--Santa Barbarian or not--a 2008 full of succulent ripeness at all the best surprising times. And be sure whenever it arrives to bite down. Hard.

Just got back from New Jersey, but this pic kind of makes it look like the "Tomato State" is undeserving of that title. Vine-ripened goodness in January? Pretty darn excellent.

Happy New Year.

Fuck! Our lake is frozen over and it's 15.7 degrees out right now. Fahrenheit.

So what are you going to do with those tomatoes, anyway?

Mike, that's "California! Man!!"

Sorry about your chill, Ahab.

Salads and sandwiches, most likely. Maybe some pasta.

It's down to 14.4 now.

Yeah, with garlic, salt and olive oil over some pasta. Maybe a little basil. Or olives. That's livin'.

Damn.

Happy New Year!

Yeah, so you get tomatoes on New Year's Day. Here, we got about a foot of snow.

But while you get to enjoy a nice tomato-basil-fresh mozarella salad, we got to enjoy sledding. So at the end of the day, we all get to enjoy the day. It' going to be a good year.
