Our sweet boy got so excited when he saw the first tomato turn red, that he promptly picked it....probably a couple of days early. No worries, it ripened up the rest of the way on the counter. Hubby sliced it up, passed around the sweetest tasters for all of us to try, and then made us BLTs for lunch with the rest of it. Would you believe that was my very first BLT?!
Here's another question for you, what kind of tomato is this?! We have no idea. Its shaped like a heart, super red, sweet, and this one is almost, but not quite, the size of a tennis ball. The vine is between four and five feet tall (its hard to tell because after it grew out the top of the tomato cage, it started following along the low 'fence' we have around the garden to keep the cats & critters out of it). Whatever it is, its delish and producing like crazy. Now, we're just waiting for more to turn red!
Oh yea....as spoiled as I am to be able to go outside to take pics most of the time, there is one challenging aspect...our kitty cat, Bonnie. Bonnie, meet Tomato. I'm sure she was mighty disappointed that what I had brought out was a treat for us and not her!
Does anyone have a tasty tomato recipe they want to share? Please do! It looks like we're going to have quite a bit this summer to slice, dice, and taste. :>
