Even though it has been smokey and we had drought like conditions there are things I will miss about this summer here. 

My neighbor likes to garden, he has a huge crop of tomatoes. He has perfected his crop and it shows. Lots of cherry tomatoes. Also Heirloom and Brandy-wine  These are two great amazing larger tomatoes. It has such a great taste, if grown right.

I have to say these have been a staple in my diet all summer and when it comes to end I will be sad. Lots of fresh local produce comes to end but there are ways to still get it and also grocery stores have options too.
