It's Almost Tomato Time




Tomato season typically starts at the beginning of August up here.  But it's late this year.  For everyone.  It took forever to seem tomatoes and then it took forever for them to show any signs of color.




So much promise.








And then all of a sudden...I started seeing some color!  You have no idea who excited I got when I spotted these two tomatoes above.




This was actually the first tomato that I picked.  It's ripe in this photo.  It's a variety called Tomato Ananas Noire and it's pink and green!  Sadly, something ate part of it.  But I just cut that part out and ate the other half.  And it was delicious!




And this is called a Pink Cherry Tomato.  Which is neither the size of a normal cherry tomato, nor the color pink that the package indicated.  But it was supper yummy {about six more have been harvested and eaten since...all awesome}.

Look at all those tomatoes!!! To me there is nothing that tastes better than a homegrown tomato. My plants look dreadful at the moment thanks to the hot weather we had a few weeks ago, but still producing. MMMMM!
