Mater Maximus Find


Just a little play on words here. If mater is mother in latin and maximus is greatest, then mater maximus in the south would somehow mean "greatest mother of all vegetables." Well, or something like that!

I was born in September and my mom said she craved tomatoes all summer long.  She passed the mater gene down to me.  I could eat them three times a day and sometimes do.




A relative is out of town and told us we could come over and pick all of the maters that were turning pink.  I think they have about 10 plants.

Boy, did we make a haul--51 of those beautiful latin lovers.



We found them over, around, in and through and on the ground.




What a find!




What a find!




Hope your Friday finds you doing well and having a wonderful day!

Lovely images! I love tomatoes too - right off of the plant, sweet and warm from the sun.
ah fresh ripe off the vine tomatoes, nothing like it.

Every southern girl loves her maters and that includes me! We usually have a mater and mayo for lunch around here. Sometimes we even throw on some lettuce and cheddar. Beautiful pictures.

I love tomatoes too, and I can't get over the flavor when right out of the garden. These photos are beautiful!
I too love fresh grown tomatoes, not as much grocery ones, they do taste very different. Mine didn't grow very good this year, I need to learn.
