Reason #5,064 why I love my in-laws

Each spring I have great ambition to grow a garden. But for one reason or another, the glorious garden that I have planted (in my imagination) dies. Instead of being too sad about it (especially since I hate weeding) I find consolation in the fact that I will be able to ransack the amazing, uber-producing garden of Dave’s parents.

This year, the tomatoes were late coming on. My father-in-law blamed it on the different way he had planted them (without staking them). Turns out, it was just because they had a slow start this spring. Now we have tomatoes coming out of our ears.

I think a garden fresh tomato with s & p is one of my top five favorite foods. I could eat them all day long. And I would, if I didn’t get such horrible (pregnancy related) heartburn.

Last week my in-laws dropped off a huge basket of tomatoes for us. Glorious, garden fresh tomatoes.

It is pure torture that I am not able to eat as many as I would like. I have to say, it’s a good thing I’m well stocked with Target brand Tums all over the house. A really good thing.

    Yet another example of why you guys are Mom and Dad’s favorites. Did they bring me tomatoes? No. It’s not like we live a half and hour drive away or anything.
