My udders ache just thinking about it.

The place I like to visit the least is the gross store. I mean the grocery store.
Sometimes I wonder if I could live on tomatoes and peppers from the garden only. 
But I also love cheese with my peppers and tomatoes and salad and potatoes and and and and and and and and….
I love cheese so much, there should be a warning sign in the dairy department with my photo on it. 
Then I think….hey, Suz, you are clever and hardworking, why don’t you learn how to make cheese? 
Then I think to mySUZself you have to get a cow to make cheese. 
Cows are SO cute…the big eyes….the long eyelashes…such gentle souls and I’d name my cow veronica. No, Elsie.  Elsie it is! 
She would have a nice little sheltered home next to my garden. 
Heated in the winter, fans in the summer of course. 
I’d wake up everyday and milk Elsie to make my cheese to accompany my tomatoes and peppers and salad and and and and….  
Of course, after all that milking, then I would feel complete udder empathy for Elsie. 
Poor Elsie’s udders. 
I might just give up cheese. You know….for udders sake.
The moral of this story is that I can likely just live on produce from the garden.
And maybe some imported cheese on occasion? 
Oh, I am udderly rotten.

  1. I think we have a lot of things in common, starting with our love of tomatoes, peppers, cheese and wine of course. What would cheese be without the perfect glass of wine? 😉


  2. You are hilarious. I am trying to imagine you with a cow. There is a lot of manure. Like, more than you can even imagine. It might overwhelm you. It would be great for your tomatoes.


  3. Goat. Goat cheese is so great with tomatoes and goats are so much smaller than cows. I love tomatoes as well. Never a better botanical success than grape tomatoes. Really good taste for those of us who cannot have garden tomatoes year round.


  4. Hi, We are home from a wonderful trip to Arkansas with friends. Photos tomorrow!!!!!Hope you have had a great week. Love your tomatoes in your garden…. We hate buying them at the GROSS store too… BUT–for us, that's our choice!!!! Guess we need to live on a farm—and grow all that we need… Oh Well!!!! (My next life –maybe)… haHugs,Betsy
