One cold morning in winter， I went alone to a hillside to do some hunting. I sat there waiting for about an hour. Suddenly， a big beautiful deer appeared less than 20 feet away from me. There was no cover near him. Surely I could shoot him.
To my surprise， he came toward me！ He was curious， I suppose， or maybe he was stupid. For this was not a young deer， but a fully grown-up one. He must have known about men and their guns. But this deer came closer， and I still waited. His big eyes never moved away from my face. His wonderful head with a set of antlers (鹿角) was clearly in sight.
I was getting a bit nervous as he walked closer. A big deer can do a lot of damage. Well， he walked right up to where I was sitting. Then he stopped and looked at me.
What happened next was hard to believe. But it all seemed quite natural. I held out my hands and touched his head right between the antlers. And he liked it. The big， wild， beautiful deer bent his head.
I touched his head and body. His nose touched my shoulder. I fed him with my last sandwich.
Well， he finally went his way， down the hill. Shoot him？ Not me. You wouldn’t， either. Not after that. I just watched him go， a strong deer carrying a proud head.
I picked up my gun， and started walking back. Suddenly， I heard two shots， one after another. If you have hunted much， you will know what two shots mean. They mean a kill. I had forgotten that there were other hunters around.
You will now understand why I gave up hunting from that day on.

Consider the tomato： easy to grow， healthy to eat， tasty in just about any dish and pleasant to look at. And come late summer， in steady supply. Though you can find it during the coldest winter months，August is the tomato’s season to shine. Farmers’ markets and stores are bursting with less known but tastier varieties， including purple cherries and big heirlooms.
“Heirlooms ripened on the vine(藤) are the tastiest of all tomatoes，” says Amy Goldman Fowler， author of The Heirloom Tomato. “I think their beauty is more than skin-deep.” Heirloom seeds have been around for at least 50 years， often passed down from generation to generation. You may hear cherry or heirloom used to describe a tomato at hand， but there are many different kinds of tomatoes， and growers have fun giving fancy names to varieties： Mortgage Lifters， Beefsteaks， Oxhearts， Early Girls.
And all of them come with health benefits. Tomatoes are a good source of the antioxidant lycopene (抗氧化番茄红素)， which is thought to help lower a person’s risk for heart problems and cancer. Tomatoes also contain healthy vitamins A and C. For the best fruit， choose tomatoes with shiny， firm skin and a little give， and store them at room temperature away from direct sunlight. Keep them out of the fridge， since cold temperatures can affect the original taste.
“They satisfy something more than just taste，” says Fowler. “Tomatoes feed your soul.”
