Homegrown Tomatoes

It rained so much here in the spring that I planted my garden really late and just this morning pulled radishes and cut lettuce for the first time. (It's my first garden ever!)
 

 
It got thinking about a great old country song by Guy Clark called "Homegrown Tomatoes." He died a couple of years ago, but he was such a good songwriter. Thought I'd share some first class songwriting this Sunday morning:

Lyrics
Ain't nothin' in the world that I like better
Than bacon & lettuce & home grown tomatoes
Up in the mornin' out in the garden
Get you a ripe one don't get a hard one
Plant 'em in the spring eat 'em in the summer
All winter without 'em's a culinary bummer
I forget all about the sweatin' & diggin'
Everytime I go out and pick me a big one

Homegrown tomatoes home grown tomatoes
Wha'd life be without homegrown tomatoes
Only two things money can't buy
That's true love and homegrown tomatoes

I've been out to eat and that's for sure
But it's nothin' a homegrown tomato won't cure
Put 'em in a salad put 'em in a stew
You can make your very own tomato juice
Eat 'em with eggs eat 'em with gravy
Eat 'em with beans pinto or navy
Put 'em on the side put 'em in the middle
Put a home grown tomato on a hotcake griddle
 
Homegrown tomatoes home grown tomatoes
Wha'd life be without homegrown tomatoes
Only two things money can't buy
That's true love and homegrown tomatoes

If I's to change this life that I lead
I'd be Johnny tomato seed
Cause I know what this country needs
Homegrown tomatoes in every yard you see
When I die don't bury me
In a box in a cemetery
Out in the garden would be much better
I could be pushin' up homegrown tomatoes
 
Homegrown tomatoes home grown tomatoes
Wha'd life be without homegrown tomatoes
Only two things money can't buy
That's true love and homegrown tomatoes

    Yes, tomatoes are a fruit. Why, I don't know. I only grow them and eat them. I don't classify or name them. If I did, they would be a juicy fungus called shlamackelipinjuicin.

    Scientifically speaking, a tomato is definitely a fruit. True fruits are developed from the ovary in the base of the flower, and contain the seeds of the plant (though cultivated forms may be seedless). Blueberries, raspberries, and oranges are true fruits, and so are many kinds of nut.

    Hey, in my world fruit grows on trees and vegetables on the ground. Where ambrosia grows, nobody knows.

    Ambrosia, food of the gods . . . and a fine band in LA.

    I had no idea that you could grow a vegetable juice OR vegetable soup ... I've only seen it in a can, sorta like Ambrosia, which I often see on the shelves in supermarkets
