Actually, I am not even sure it is off the vine. It’s more like it’s off the plant.
Well, I picked the first tomato a few days ago. We let it sit on the counter for a day and then cut it in half. Laura held a half and I held the other and we clinked them together to toast the occasion. It was a wonderful scene.
This is a photo of the first tomato I ever grew…
Isn’t it huge? Haha. Here is the real size. I did a little camera trickery with that last pic.
I have to say, it was pretty tasty, for being my first tomato and all. The only thing is…the skin was a little tough. I am sure I can get past that though. I am not even sure what type of tomato it was. We have many types, so it will be exciting eating them all.
