The End of Summer

It has finally come. This is the last tomato plant. It truly means that fall has come. The crazy old lady is picking off the tomatoes so we can have a bite. Notice that Dawson crowded right up to the front of the line. He is such a tomato hog. And to think it was I who introduced him to this nectar.

What is the matter with nutso woman's hands? She says it is something to do with picking up poo. She is so easily sidetracked. At least she understands that getting us tomatoes is a priority.

That Dawson is such a smart little guy!

Snow flurries are in our forecast this weekend. It just can't be!

Deetz said...

I have never had a tomato. But, my mum loves the garden fresh ones. She put bird seed in the feeders the other day, so winter is not far behind...You know, that was a great idea. I should see if mr. spider wants to be a part of my halloween custome or something.
Great Idea....

Moco....I must admit I am addicted to tomatoes too. I wonder is there a group for us. I eat one a day. My hoomans were wondering where they were going.... hahahahaha. Then they busted me helping myself to one out of the bucket. I eatone green one before my breakfast! I know where they are and just wait for mommy to say "ok Willow get your Tomato" then yummy! So...what I am trying to say is "I can't blame Dawson for taking cuts"!
love,
Willow

Pedro said...

Moco,

I've never tried tomatoes. I'll have to ask my mom to give me one. I do like string beans, asparagas, lettuce, brussels sprouts and most of all, corn on the cob!!!

it's funny how picking up poo is such a big deal with these humans. picking tomatoes is much smarter.

woofs.

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Guess what? I tried a tomato for the first time this weekend! Mom gave me the tomato slice off her chicken sandwich. She giggled because I held it in my fang teeth and it just hung out to the side. But I quickly got down to business and it was very tasty!
