I am eating my words. Just the other day my husband asked me why I hadn't canned any of the tomatoes, and I complained that I hadn't had enough in one harvest to make it worth canning... Well - now I have enough!
As promised a long while ago - the elusive "Emmy" tomato. From all I could find there is only one photo of this variety, and it looks like a plain orange tomato. That's definitely not what I got though. These tomatoes are fluorescent orange with red markings. They look like a flame. Gorgeous! I haven't cut it open to taste it yet.
I also picked the one and only Great White tomato to ripen so far. It looks pretty yellow, but is seems all of my "white" tomatoes came up very yellow instead. The exception being the Fantome du Laos.
And the biggest news? Little Aspie received his "In Training" vest in the mail today. I brought him with me to Costco this evening and he did absolutely wonderfully. He did get a little scared of the dessert cooler, and we took a quick break, but otherwise he was doing an excellent "heel" and only needed to be corrected a couple times when he started to sniff out crumbs. I'm so proud of him!
