first tomato of 2008

B here. Normally, in much of the country, and certainly in my old Kentucky Home, tomatoes by July 4th aren’t that much of a big deal. But in the micro-climate on this northern little hill, it’s a miracle. Eaten out of hand with a sprinkling of sea salt, this one little tomato brings tears to the eye. Welcome, holy summer.


  1. Oh wow, how exciting is that?! Savor every morsel and drip! :)

  2. We certainly did. B really wanted a tomato by the Fourth of July, so he bought a patio tomato plant that already had a small fruit developing. Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do!
