I'm jealous! How early did you plant? I can't believe you're already eating ripe tomatoes!
Don't be jealous! We totally cheated this year and purchased mature plants at Lowes that were already a foot tall! I know, I am so ashamed! 🙂
Love it! Ours are still on the vine, can't wait to bite into the first one. Unlike you, I don't slice it gingerly. I hold the tomato in one hand and the salt shaker in the other and nosh! :o)
Carrie, "nosh" is a perfect way to enjoy fresh from the vine tomatoes! Nosh on my friend!! 🙂
You were my first this year,
Plump, firm, and a bright vibrant red.
I had a bit of fear,
That if I waited too long to pick you, that you might not make it.
But hooray, fantastic, such joy! You stayed perfect.
I picked you early Saturday morning,
Lovingly cradled in my caring hands as we drove.
Drove to my in-laws.
Where we sliced you up and savored you.
Every. Perfect. Bite.
