First Tomato of the season!

We picked our first tomato.

Eating is best straight from the garden!

Well at leat you don't have to worry about salmonella with that one. :-)

Looks delicious! I have just a few small green ones so far; amazing that you have a ripe one already. I was thinking a few weeks ago with the tomato recall that I was glad I got carried away with planting tomatoes this year-- we won't have to worry about food poisoning with these!

Ours are just buds.

Nothing like tomatoes, fresh picked from one's own garden!

A lovely part of summer...

That's great...I don't know how well our tomato plants will do this year. As Cathy said, at least home grow you know the processing it went though.

How exciting - I missed all the seeding and planting this year - loved seeing your tomato!

Cheryl said...

What a beauty, I like mine straight from the garden to, warm where the sun has been on them....lovely.

Deb said...

What a delicious looking tomato :-}Home grown is best! I am sure that is why Kate is a vegetarian - raised on homegrown fruit and veg, she loves it all! :-}

Slice it up . . . you think you can get enough pieces to share with everyone here?

Q said...

Dear Lisa,
She was tasty too!

Q said...

Dear Cathy,
That is so very right!
I trust my food in MY garden.

Q said...

Dear Rose,
We also planted lots of plants this year. I would like to put some up if we do not eat them all. I love tomato sandwiches and salads.
You will enjoy yours too, very soon.

Dear Mari-Nanci,
The garden is always a joy!
I love walking out into the backyard and picking supper!

Q said...

Dear Chris,
I was concerned that all our rains would give us blosom rot but so far the fruits look fine. My husband and I bet on when we would pick our first. I won. I bet
July 1st!

Q said...

Dear Sue,
Glad you are doing better. I did not do as much as normal since I too was sick. My husband did most of the work!
I am glad he did too. Having the fresh garden produce is so delicious. I would miss it.
Hope you can get to a Farmer's Market and get some home grown tomatoes.

Q said...

Dear Deb,
Home grown is why I am a plant eater too.

Q said...

Dear Cheryl,
I like to pick, cut and eat as quickly as possible. That is fresh!
My husband and I look forward to tomotoes and zucchini. Best suppers I ever fix!

Q said...

Dear Tom,
It is a small fruit, we could each have bite! LOL Come August I will have more than enough to share.

Marvin said...

Your first tomato looks grand, and you are right, eating them right out of the garden is best.

Due to a variety of circumstances, we got in a very late and abbreviated garden this year. It will be a long while before we enjoy our first tomato. :-((( I just hope that it doesn't get so hot that the blooms will not set on fruit.

Q said...

Dear Marvin,
We also were late with our planting this year. No peas or beans. Getting the tomatoes and the zucchini in was top priority come May 1st. I do see the pepper plants are blooming and the eggplants at least are growing. It could be we also will get too hot for fruit.
Hope you get some vine ripe for your table.
