Isn't it pretty? This is the first tomato of the season from our heirloom tomato plants that we bought from a vendor at the Hope Farmer's Market. Tastes just like a tomato should, with that lovely sweet and savory homegrown flavor. Heaven with sea salt. We may have to have a tomato party because at last count, we had over one hundred green tomatoes. I live in fear of squirrels now. Does anyone know if the flavor is as good if you take a tomato off the plant while it is still half green?
