Signs of summer's end
In my town, school starts a week from tomorrow, and that is surely one of the signs that summer is slipping away. Another? I'm sipping what is probably going to be my last box of powdered tea drink mixes for the year, because those hot-hot-hot days seem to be behind us and I won't be drinking as much iced tea. This Arizona Pomegranate Green Tea, which is sweetened with Splenda, was a new one for me. I like the bottled Arizona teas I've tried, and I liked this drink mix as well. Not surprisingly, it has a very tart and fruity taste, which I enjoy as an occasional treat.
Another sign that summer is advancing? My husband's tomatoes are at long last turning red!
This is a huge deal at our house, where he has been tending these tomatoes for months now. He actually broke down and bought some at the grocery store the other day, but I am going to wait and have a tomato sandwich with the ones he grew as a fitting tribute to the end of summer!
