Accentuate the positive



For Michigan in July, here are three great positives: tomatoes, trees, and water, all in abundance!
The title of the blog comes from a Johnny Mercer/ Harold Arlen song "Accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, latch on the affirmative, and don't mess with Mister In-Between."

For much more about the tomato, go to Ask.com and find the answer to whether it is a fruit or a vegetable.

And to buy these beauties and other great locally grown produce, visit Corey Lake Orchards.

And for more attitudes on A, check out ABC Wednesday!

    As far as tomatoes, I think I am the only person on the planet who doesn't like them.

  10. Thanks, everyone, for the comments!
    Rog, thanks for the reminder that it is not just Bing Crosby who sang this oldie but goodie.
    Tomato season is heaven at out house with tomatoes at every meal -- making up for the winter's deprivation.

  11. The angle of the shot makes those tomatoes look huge! Wasn't there a movie called "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes"?
