The scent of tomato plants

The smell of a tomato vine lingers on my hand.

Without thinking, my fingers touch my face, and I breathe in that sweet scent of summer and sunlight. The experience still delights me, no matter how many years I’ve gardened.

For some the scent is pungent. To me, it’s summer’s calling card.

It’s fall in California. I should pull up the plants.
