      The Tomato Gardener 

      7 years ago

      I wait patiently all winter for the cold weather to leave and spring to arrive, but perhaps what I look forward to most is the end of summer when I can reap the benefits of the corn and tomato plants I've been tending to for the past few months. Nothing is better than hanging out in the backyard on a late summer evening, and chowing down on some fresh grilled corn on the cob with friends and family. I'm anxious for harvest so I can try this grilled corn on the cob with garlic butter recipe. It sounds delicious, and my mouth is watering in anticipation.
