Somebody's been eating my tomatoes!

Every week in the summer when we arrive in Southampton after a week in the city we go straight to the vegetable garden in the backyard to survey the vegetable and herb garden – very often with a high beams flashlight. 

Oh, the many questions I ask: 
“What grew?”
“What’s ready to be picked?” 
“What did the deer eat?" – they jump a four foot fence to eat my veggies 
“What didn’t get enough water?” 
and my favorite...... “What am I going to cook?” 

The mint shot up and so did the basil. Somebody’s been eating my tomatoes!!!
