For some of us, eating is routine. But for Pablo Neruda, the well-known Chilean poet, food was inspirational. His passion for taste, texture, color and aroma of good food left us with writings that will make your mouth water. His devotion to food brought him a Nobel Prize and motivated many a shy cook to venture into the kitchen. Pablo loved tomatoes ? not just ?loved,? as in ate them a lot ? he loved and adored them down to his soul, and rhapsodized his feelings through magical prose and verse.

Even though the weather is performing like it is the middle of summer, I'm getting into an autumn frame of mind. I have already hung a wreath of colorful leaves on my front door. Later this week I'm going to cover the lamppost at the corner of my driveway with cornstalks, and string garlands of colorful leaves up to its old-fashioned globe. Maybe this will inspire Mother Nature to turn the burners down to low. It's time for her to bring out her box of paints to color some of the leaves on the liquidambar trees lining Princess Anne Road bright hues of red, gold and orange.

The seed catalogs arrived last month. The daffodils are blooming and there are tiny pomegranates on the pomegranate tree. It must be time to plant the garden. Last month, I was eager to get started. This week, I'm not so sure, but the time has come. This weekend, “Tomatomania” arrives at Descanso Gardens. Tomatomania is an annual festival and tomato sale described as “the world's largest (and most fun) heirloom tomato seedling sale!” Any way you slice it, tomatoes are fun. Tomatoes are the most rewarding and easy-to-grow garden vegetable.

His devotion to food brought him a Nobel Prize and motivated many a shy cook to venture into the kitchen. Neruda loved tomatoes - not just “loved” as in ate them a lot - he loved and adored them down to his soul, and rhapsodized his feelings through magical prose and verse. My favorite line closes his famous poem, “Oda al Tomate”: “The tomato offers its gift of fiery color and cool completeness.” That line makes me want to hold, sniff and squeeze a tomato while I decide how to eat it. Summer-ripened tomatoes are the perfect choice for fresh, beautiful food that packs a nutritious punch.

Blistering heat, lightning, thunder, wind, rain and towering cloud formations that were exploding over the mountaintops. Last week's weather pattern was like a crazy mixed-up grab bag. Local TV weather newscasters got to add some zing to their reports as this unusual weather action caught everyone off guard. At least they had an opportunity to flip through their files to come up with rarely used graphics to show us folks. Yep, the record-setting high temps in L.A. were even reported in England where my son and his family live.
