We woke up to torrential rain this morning, the kind that brings me back to typhoon season in the Philippines. The strong winds brought our already stressed apple tree into submission–fruits fell with every blow and leaves got strewn all over. I’m trying not to think about the aftermath cleanup because we need this water.
As I look over our still-standing tomato plants, they make me wish the Sweet Millions, Fantastics and Black Princes would ripen at the same time so I can use them here. Gardening has been an exercise in patience, you see. Thankfully, fresh, canned or frozen tomatoes would work for this soup.
