It’s now time to start enjoying the fruits of my labor! I picked my first tomato from my garden yesterday but it didn’t survive long enough to take a picture. I rinsed it off under cold water in my kitchen sink and ate it all. 🙂 What a delight it was, juicy, full of unspoiled flavor straight from Nature! This morning it’s early so I took the time to wash my 2nd tomato and plop it on my dark orange cutting mat from Ikea. It’s about 3-4 inches in diameter and just as good looking as my first one. I still have 3-4 more red ones on my 5 plants with 20 more hanging there ripening. There haven’t been enough ripe tomatoes yet to share but that will come soon.
I cut this one up along with celery, radishes and a cucumber from my garden. I poured a bit of Italian dressing on it and called it lunch. Yum! The celery and radishes came from Foppema’s Farm in Whitinsville, MA. Their produce is organically grown and has never been refrigerated. They put in on their shelves right out of their fields. I love their veggies and fruits.
