Our tomato patch has gone wild. Even the plant that got crushed when I dropped an air-conditioner from the second story window.
In the tangle there are a plethora of hidden tomatoes that escape the picking. Many fall and roll into oblivion where they are forgotten until they begin to ferment. As I was picking some of them today, I became intoxicated with the aroma of tomato brew. Who knew?
We have different varieties of tomatoes, including some tiny micro ones which are about the size of a pea. Despite their minuscule size, they are packed with flavor. As I popped one in my mouth, I began to think, "Wouldn't it be cool if it also had a punch of spice? Just like red-hot candies." My stream on thought went on to ponder why hasn't anybody created a spicy tomato. Tomatoes and chiles are both nightshades - it seems like with the miracle of science the two could be hybridized.
That's what I want - a spicy tomato.
