I knew my wife was heading to the city to see her mama this weekend. So always the anxious one to please my mama-in-law, I decided to wash and bag her a mess of the tomatoes I had picked. I canned all my jalapeños and set aside a pint for mama-in-law too. I had also picked a few of the cucumbers while I was hoeing them. These, too, went in a bag and put on the stage bound for Inlawville. Brownie points for me. Just trying to reassure “you know who” that she didn’t lose a daughter, but rather she gained a son...a country son, but a son nonetheless.
The cucumbers are missing above, but trust me, they are as good as any farmer’s market variety you can find. Well, after a long day in the summer sun I am beat, and I think I hear a nice cozy bed calling my name. I’ll see you next episode.
