Early Garden Bounty

It was certainly not my intention to have two posts before 9AM, but when I went out to the backyard to pull the trashcans to the curb, look what I found! The first ripe tomato of the season. While I'd like to slice it and eat it now, I think I'll save it for a little Bruschetta Salad later in the day.

What a great picture! That tomato just pops...after having a cardboard version for lunch, I can hardly wait for a ripe tomato and it's going to be weeks...weeks!

Oh yum - basil and tomatoes - two of my favourite summer things!

Thanks for visiting my blog.

My first stop by your blog and I picked a great day for it. Lovely photo - makes my mouth water! It will be more than a month before we have ripe tomatoes here.

I'm so jealous! You got a tomato already?!

We had a tiny one get ripe, but the squirrels got to it first. :(

It will be a week or so before the next ones are ripe. But, when they do, I'm making BLTs.
