OH YEA!!!!!! Today is the day i have waited for since last fall. Thats when the last of the tomatoes were picked and savored, knowing that the memory would have to hold me for long time till another fresh, delicious, begging to be eaten red beauty would appear.
Well today was the day. Our two tomato plants (Rutgers) have grown huge. Then they started filling with those cute little blossoms. Then little green orbs that grew but remained green..

 So this was the garden this morning. But hiding among all those big green leaves was the fruits of all our labors.

 If you look toward the bottom you'll see just the slightest hint of pink. BUT right behind, two Solanum lycopersicums were trying to hide. BUT to a dedicated Solanum Sleuth there would be no hiding.

And here they are. Two delectable red orbs just begging to be salted and eaten.
I was going to take a picture of what happened to the smaller of the two, but somehow it got eaten
(to many oohhs and ahhhhhs and of course much lip smacking').

The rest will be enjoyed in tonights salad. Finally a tomato i can taste!!!!!!!

I'm jealous. Ours won't be ready for weeks.

Pretty tomatoes!

Store bought tomatoes are no match for fresh home grown tomatoes right out of the garden. Enjoy!

Yum! Nothing like a home grown tomato! My daughter-in-law got some at the Market this week. I've enjoyed a slice on an open face broiled tuna sandwich...then out comes the seasoned salt to sprinkle on the rest of it, down the hatch it goes....mmmmm goood!

There's absolutely nothing that can compare with a warm, juicy tomato direct from the vine. I won't even buy the ones in the store anymore.

My tomato vines just have the little green variety, but fortunately for me ripe tomatoes are abundant now at the Farmers Market. I buy lots!
