OK, they may not be perfectly beautiful, but they’re native!
Every year, my family has a good-natured competition to see who can pick the first native tomatoes before the 4th of July, so it looks like I won!
I guess it probably helped that the tomato plants I put in the ground were HUGE and already had green tomatoes on them!
Can’t wait for native tomatoes and sweet corn to be flowing freely, sometime soon. . . can’t beat a better summer supper!
NEWS FLASH…………..My Mom called last night to say she’d picked her first two ripe tomatoes in a neighboring town. Told you we had a “healthy competition” going on here! (I had given her a big plant with green tomatoes already on it for Mother’s Day, hoping she’d get some early tomatoes, her favorite food.)
