Back in the summer of 2007, I participated in a CSA, and found myself frequently overwhelmed by produce. Case in point: for several weeks in a row, I received 10 pounds of tomatoes a week. For people who do things like make pasta sauce and can it, this sort of bounty probably sounds wonderful. For me, who did neither, it was about 9 pounds of tomatoes too many per week.
I made it through, with many tomatoes shared with friends, many caprese salads, and probably a certain amount of compost.¹
I also had fun taking photos of the tomatoes. One week I had a large number of little egg-sized tomatoes, which inspired me to play with my food. (The yolk is a little round yellow tomato.)
¹ I also produced a fair amount of tomato posts, including a tomato ThThTh list, and a post about excessive tomatoes, in which I actually first posted these photos.²
² It’s so funny to go back and look at some of my old posts. I was a posting maniac back when this blog was in its infancy. Also, I was often pretty damn funny. If I do say so myself.³
³ Apparently, I do.

You crack me up. I love the egg-tomatoes! I think I had not discovered your blog yet in 2007 so it was fun to look back at those old, hilarious posts!
You are, like, so cool to be using tomatoes as your, like, theme this week. After reading this post, I was all like, wow.
Great links back in time. Thanks for the laughs.
