I'm trying to get a post in before midnight, with 15 minutes left, here it goes. This evening I was able to make my first home grown tomato sandwich. Toasted or with fresh bread it's one of my favorite sandwiches. I add a little chopped green onion and for the first time a pinch of basil leaf, both also grown by me.
Nothing beats the taste of a home grown tomato, they just have so much more flavor and are juicy. I add a little bit of mayonnaise, some salt and pepper and it's ready to eat. The tomatoes are small this year, I have had to do a lot of watering and it's never as good as a nice long rain shower. The early girl plant lived up to its name with two tomatoes already. I am a little disappointed, my golden boy was mislabeled and it appears to be a roma tomato, I am not really a fan of those. The golden boy is a large yellow tomato, it has a very different taste and is low in acids. I will miss not having any this summer.
