THE FESTIVAL OF THE TOMATO

12052009428

I noticed on my friend Ronelle’s beautiful blog myfrenchkitchen that it was recently the Festival de la tomate 2009 in her part of France. 

As usual she gives great coverage to the event with wonderful pictures wrapped up with truly romantic descriptions.

I worship tomatoes and have always tried to live my life by this well known tomato creed.

“Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad. (Miles Kington).”

  1. Ronelle…you’re right it has wide application…and the tomato can be a sauce of great wisdom.

    I often change the header…this is in Paris ..a few years back Dasiy Chain and I were lucky to live there for nearly a month.

  2. Enjoyed the quote. Despite not planting or caring for a garden this year, we had a few cherry tomato plants growing anyway. We enjoy them as well, and hope to do better next year with a crop.
