Vacations are great, but what about the tomatoes?

We're taking a few days off and heading to Cape Cod. I'm really looking forward to the trip. But, we're leaving an awful lot of tomatoes on the table (well, ripening on the vines.) Ditto the bell peppers. And don't forget all that arugula I just planted! I hope all this produce doesn't go to pot while we're away. We spend so much time and effort planting and pruning and weeding and worrying, and now that the harvest is upon us, off we go?  Maybe I should have planned our trip for July, before the harvest season.
Then again, it is only five days. And we have been eating plenty of tomatoes for the past two weeks. And I do have a cat sitter staying at our place who will hopefully partake in some of the bounty. And there's plenty of fruit that's still green, which will be waiting for us when we get back. Ah, yes, I'm feeling better already...can't wait to enjoy the surf.
See ya next week!

I'm sure the cat sitter will enjoy some fresh garden veggies. Have a great vacation.
