During our drive down through Southern Ontario en route to Windsor, ON to celebrate our first year anniversary, I couldn’t help notice how much the area around Leamington, ON had changed over the years. It had been at least five or more years since I was last down that way.

The one thing I couldn’t help but notice was how ‘eco’ it has become.

The fields are scattered with wind turbines as was the horizon.


There was some sort of solar farm as well.


And of course, no trip through the farmlands of Southern Ontario is complete without a shower of fresh hay escaping from the bales! LOL


Random facts about Leamington, ON – its known as the Tomato Capital of Canada, home to a large Heinz factory with a 4 km² crop of tomatoes, the town’s water tower is in the shape of a giant tomato and lastly, there’s a tomato festival each August!


Today’s lunch:  fresh vine tomatoes with jack cheese on a toasted chiabatta bun smeared with plenty of  homemade aioli.

Lastly, while I was making myself some lunch today….I totally thought of Leamington.
