I tried to ignore the call of the tomatoes but their insistent whispers kept interrupting my thoughts and logic.... "Come on, Bo, we're ripe enough to eat......" "Some of us may not be deep red in color but we're almost there....what's another day?" "We taste just as good a day or two before we finish ripening as we do when we're all the way ripened...." "Nobody will know if you pick a few of us.....nobody's counting..." "Just pick a few of us....just to get an idea of what we'll taste like when we're fully ripened..." "There's no cherry tomato swat team that's going to swoop down and arrest you if you pick a few of us...."
