fresh produce....REALLY fresh!

A week or so ago, I picked the first ripened tomatoes off my plant. Just a couple days ago I decided to try one. It was SO good! I have never, ever eaten most of a tomato in one sitting, much less eaten almost just a tomato for a meal. I have never really wanted to eat that much of a tomato by itself. But, I cut a slice, paired it with a little mozzarella cheese and some pesto - and oh my! It was wonderful! I even tried it with just salt and liked that too. I couldn't believe it! Now I understand why my mom, aunt, and grandma always say that they love homegrown tomatoes. I do too!!

Sanaa loved the tomatoes you gave us! She crammed as much tomato as she could in her little mouth. They were really yummy! Thank you! Now I'm wanting to grow my own tomatoes too. :-)
