Yesterday, I had my first ripe cherry tomato from my garden, red and juicy, unlike any from the grocery store or even the farmers’ market. I hungrily devoured it within seconds after picking. I patiently watch as the larger heirloom tomatoes become a little pinker everyday. I wonder if I should let the pinkest ones ripen more on the vine or if I should pick them now to ripen inside before a hungry raccoon discovers them.
We had a steady rain last night that should be good for the garden. Now I’m waiting for the rain to stop so I can check out today’s menu.
