so, the time is ripe for fried green tomatoes.
thus, the conversation in the local farmers’ market:
— excuse me, are those green tomatoes?
— these are green tomatoes. did you want tomatoes that are green, or green tomatoes?
— i wanted green tomatoes, not tomatoes that are green.
— these are green red tomatoes, is that what you want?
— oh, then these are green tomatoes! i’ll have two kilos, please…
i fried two of them tonight, delicious.
