circle of life

this little one is a tommy reminder to us of the circle of life. one of the last to leave the field this season, it is a reason for thanksgiving.

and, a reminder of the circle.

tomatoes come, tomatoes go. from the earth they draw nutrients; to us they give life, and back into the earth they go to give again.

this little one is a tommy reminder of terra firma and the goodness of the giver of life. thanks be, for you, me and tommy.
