First Bite

Because of all the rain this year my garden(s) are suffering...things are stilted and running late. By this time of the year my tomato plants are usually overflowing with crimson present I have only two...well, one now. Plenty of green tomatoes, but only two (nearly) ripe ones. Anyhow, as is my tradition, I plucked this from the vine and ate it where it grew...still warm from the sun. You can't get any more local than that. The flavor, the aroma...the actual weight of the tomato in your hand...there's nothing like it.
