One tomato, two tomato…

Here’s Anne Raver’s kitchen table holding a day’s worth of fruit from her late summer garden.  Some gardens pushed out tons despite the excessive heat and drought.  Others, like mine, pooped out much too early  —  due, perhaps, to my strict regimen of pure neglect.  I had to depend heavily on the kindness of others for my love apples and even bought a few cases at the local farm stand for drying.  If you’ve never dried tomatoes before, it’s a snap with a good dehydrator.  Mine is the Excalibur.  As the flesh leathers and shrinks, the flavor sweetens and intensifies. They’re a much welcome remembrance of summer during those bleak February days.
