First Tomato of the Season

Tomato

We picked our first red tomato of the season from our little deck garden last night.  It’s small (the deck ones always are), but it’s so beautiful.  Very exciting!

It’s sitting on a counter right now while I try to decide what to do with it… I have a feeling we’ll just end up slicing it up and eating it with a little salt and pepper with our dinner tonight.  I don’t want to just throw it into anything where I won’t really be able to enjoy the flavors.

It looks like we have a couple of very orange ones out there that should be ready for picking probably in the next day or two.  Those just won’t be quite as special and can easily be thrown into a salad or stuffed into a sandwich without feeling like I’m wasting them.
