The red ones are coming! The red ones are coming!

Fresh tomato soup is calling me home. I think it's an emergency.

I swear I saw a miniature Paul Revere in my garden last night, riding his miniature horse through the tomatoes and screaming at the top of his lungs to alert me to the fact that tomato season is ramping up. We’ve had several already, but now they’re coming 4-6 at a time.
I’m not ready for canning yet. Half my stuff is still buried in the garage after we had to empty our basement to have work done. We’re planning to move the stuff back in pretty soon, but until then, I’ll just have to scramble to use the tomatoes fresh as fast as I can.
Luckily, this will not be difficult. John loves Campbell’s tomato soup, so I’m pretty sure he’d like this tomato soup. It calls for 2 pounds of tomatoes. I probably have at least one that’s 2 pounds all by itself. It looks like we’ll be eating dinner out of bowls tonight, with toasted cheese sandwiches on the side.
