Submitted to Lady Nimue’s Months of the Year Challenge for the month of August…the month in which our homegrown heirloom tomatoes are abundant. It seems a bit bizarre to be writing this in sub-zero, snow-pending weather!

Those brilliant red globes
peer out from behind floppy leaves.
Tomatoes galore!

    Sweet haiku celebrating heirlooms. They’re not the most beautiful fruit are they? My sister grows some of this type as well.
