With all the bird attacks on our tomato crop this year, I was starting to resign myself to the idea that we would not be able to make our own tomato sauce this summer. Not with our own-grown tomatoes, that is. But on my visit to the plot on Wednesday, I was delighted to find several of our San Marzano tomatoes untouched. Could it be that the birds finally got their fill? Or found easier-to-reach specimens elsewhere? Whatever the case may be, I now find myself with handfuls of red-ripe beauties, sans beak-holes. Fresh tomato sauce will be made this weekend.
