Tomato Sandwich

I FINALLY picked the first full-size tomatoes from the garden today!! I have four different kinds of larger tomatoes and the first ones ready are the Rutgers. I have never grown these before and I am very happy with how they have done. I started all my tomatoes, eggplant and peppers from seeds this past winter. Hurray for Baker Creek seeds! Anyway, this tomato was just begging to be made into a sandwich! :)

I got a slice of homemade oatmeal bread, slathered on some homemade mayo, added some salt and Seasoned Pepper and called it good! Check the dark red color of this baby!

Some of my homegrown sprouts would have been good too but I don't have any at the moment. The flavor of this Rutger tomato was everything we have always heard a homegrown tomato should be! I know, kinda silly to get so excited about a tomato, but it sure was good!! :)

So glad that you were able to harvest a tomato and enjoy it! We're ridiculously far behind here, so I don't know if its going to happen for us...but that's ok. Your pictures are close enough for me!

Sarah A,

Turkey bacon works for me too!

I was thinking the same thing about being behind, especially when I read about everyone canning tomatoes and making ketchup! Hang in there, you might get some yet! :)
