Spied, Green Tomatoes

The Birds Win! That’s a good headline in Philly during football season. It’s a little less fun when it’s about my tomatoes. Now the birds are even eating the green ones.

When I came home a couple of days ago, I saw a couple of tomatoes on the railing.

“I thought I might as well make it easy on them,” Sheryl said, talking about the birds. “No sense making them get stuck in the tomato cages.”

And so it ends, my Summer of the Tomato. It’s gone to the birds.

Just like in HR sometimes, it’s good to know when the battle is lost and just give in. What’s a treat to us is a delicacy to the birds during the drought of summer. Think about it.
