    One of the great things of summertime is homegrown tomatoes.  Yum, I love them sliced, diced and juiced.  Are they a fruit or a vegetable?  Who cares.. it's just juicy goodness from God's garden.
     Tomatoes have a special spot of their own in my memory bank.  When I was a kid, I sold tomatoes and a few other veggies down by the road in front of our house.  It was a pretty sweet business deal.  My parents grew the tomatoes, picked them, and hauled them to the road in a wheelbarrow.  Then I set them on display on my table and weighed and sold them by the pound. I borrowed my uncle's scales from across the street.  Yes, I got to keep all the money.  Kids don't know what 'overhead costs' are.. lol.  It was good practice with currency, customer service and perseverance in the heat.
      Proverbs 16;11  ''Honest scales and balances belong to the Lord; all the weights in the bag are of his making.''   Proverbs 11;1  ''The Lord detests dishonest scales, but accurate weights find favor with him.''
    May we always get what we pay for and not be fools for Satan's cheating schemes.
