We're finally trying to get back to a normal life here. We recently had a
wild fire in the hills near Santa Barbara, "the Gap Fire". We were not warned to
evacuate where we live, but we did anyway when the sky turned brown and it looked like
the middle of the night at 6pm. I'll get some photos online from some of
those crazy days, but right now I just have to say thank you to all the
amazing fire fighters and the families who worry about them when they
are on the job. Thanks to them not one house was lost.
Still, through all the craziness, I have been taking the time to tinker with my camera.
This is a beautiful translucent striped tomato variety called a Garden Peach.
This is one of the last ones my wife coaxed off the plant and it
is beautiful. It is actually fuzzy like a peach. And this one is still
sitting here waiting to be the subject of more photos. But
the others from the plant have been quite delicious.
