Another episode of "I grew it & ate it"

I finally got a ripe tomato yesterday from my tomato plants. I believe this one was from the Old German heirloom plant, but I am not 100% sure. Whatever variety it was it was delicious. This was the first tomato I found on any of my plants, back in June. This is what it looked like when I first found it. I have tons of little green tomatoes on my plants but nothing has turned red yet, except that one. Hopefully some of my cherry tomatoes and Roma tomatoes will start to turn soon.

I had bought some fresh mozzarella earlier in the week, hoping to use it with this particular tomato. So when I picked it last night I made myself a plate of fresh tomato slices topped with pink Himalayan salt, mozzarella slices, sweet basil from my garden and a little drizzle of olive oil. Plus I had some honey wheat bread with sunflower seeds (leftover from my Farmer's Market haul last Saturday). It was a really simple and delicious supper.

Homegrown is the best! We used to garden, but then with the weird weather, everything started dying so now we just get whatever survives.
