First Tomatoes

tomatoes Here they are, the first tomatoes of the season. Sasha’s Altai, Prairie Fire and a couple of Galinas. The catalog copy is right — the Sasha’s Altai are delicious — I took one bite of my lunch this afternoon and thought, as I do every year, why would anyone eat a tomato out of season? I really mean it — I’d rather wait all year and eat delicious tomatoes for a few months, than eat those hard things from the store (canned tomatoes are a different matter altogether).

I didn’t really get my act together as far as basil goes — mine is only just coming in — but the summer savory is taking over the herb bed and a chopped up tomato with some salt, olive oil, summer savory and parsley on it was delicious.

  2. Tomatoes, tomatoes everywhere
    It seems that the residents of the commune are involved ina dastardly plot to submerge me in a veritable avalanche of tomatoes. I love it!!!
    Yes, everything in season as nature intended
