The garden tomatoes are finally ripe. Well, one of them anyway. I cannot begin to explain how excited I am. The tomato plants are full of green tomatoes and I am waiting patiently for the rest to ripen.
If this first tomato is any indication, we will be having our fill of delicious tomatoes this summer. It was the star of our caprese salad tonight. As much as I love mozzarella (and even made sure to add a little extra to the plate because… well, you can’t have too much cheese), the tomato was the freshest and most flavorful I’ve had in a long, long time. I’m eagerly awaiting the garden onslaught. I’m armed with dreams of salsa, caprese salads, grilled and roasted tomatoes, tomato sandwiches, etc etc. That’s right, Mother Nature, I am ready. So… Bring it.
