First Tomato

 first tomato

First tomato of the season, a Cherokee Purple. CSA members each received a precious ONE tomato, a first taste of what’s to come very soon. Not bad for the first day of July! (Note to non-gardeners: this is early for tomatoes…). Yes, I’ll admit it with full disclosure for fairness in the competitive world of the “first ripe tomato race”: these were grown in our hoophouse, a little head start to the season.

Here a happy little one gobbles hers up like an apple. I love that.
