At home, the tomatoes are loving the heat and humidity. The first cherry tomatoes will turn red or black or white in a week or so, and the big boys, the Black Krims, the orange, red, and yellow beefsteaks are getting bigger. These latter tomatoes still have weeks to go until they're going to be ripe. Until then, we will remind ourselves what the wait is all about with a photo of last year's crop. Pretty soon, but never soon enough, we will have to stop by the cheese shop for some fresh mozzarella. We also have a bountiful crop of arugula and lettuce, with green beans and fava beans coming along.

We prefer to wait. Eat seasonally; that's why they are called seasons.
