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!!
