Wordless Wednesday

A thing of beauty, indeed.
My very first home grown tomato.



In the excitement I'm having a hard time leaving it on the vine to totally turn red.
I will be strong, I will be strong.

I LOVE seeing my fresh veggies on the vine! Don't leave the tomato too long or a bug or worm will spoil the excitement! :)

Now that IS a thing fo beauty! What will you do with the first one? Eat it in the garden, juices running down your chin and between your fingers? :-)

Michelle said...

Susanne you're tomato looks wonderful good job.

Thom said...

Woot...looks good :)

Donnetta said...

Oh yum. I can almost taste it! In the Spring I was disappointed that I wasn't able to get my garden in.

Now that fresh produce is coming forth I'm even more disappointed.

Next year...!

Tomato sandwiches are my favorite. On sourdough bread with mayo. That one looks like it will be verrrry tasty!

Slice up some mozzerella and add some balsamic vinegar and I am so THERE!

My family has always always raised tons of tomatoes, but my husband & I now live in the city with a cement pad for a backyard. . . no tomato plants. :-(
These pics make me a little homesick! There is nothing like a home-grown tomato!!!

Dont wait for it to turn red...it will be too late. Pick it now...let it sit in your window seal to finish..bugs or varmits might get it & you will be very sorry! Now pass the Bacon & lettuce please!

YUM! I miss good, fresh produce.
Hubs is trying to grow tomatoes here, but it's not looking good.

Linda said...

That is one delicious looking tomato. Great job Susanne!

Sue said...

Congrats! I'm getting some now too, and lots of cherry tomatoes that I'm growing are coming out.
Enjoy your tomatoes!

Happy WW!

I've been taking home-grown tomatoes to work for lunch. Mmmm.

No need to leave it on the vine unless you just want to. You may pick with the first blush of pink- sit it on the kitchen counter for further ripening-- with no sacrifice in taste. My life in and amongst master gardeners has taught me that when the tomato is blushing pink, it has all it needs to ripen with beautiful flavor. And your tomatoes are beautiful.
