My tomatoes were late this year, so that means they are booming now that everyone is tired of them. Fresh garden tomatoes are so yummy in July and August. By September people run when they see you coming with a basket.
I love to make a simple salad with fresh tomatoes, basil, mozzarella slices, and Kalamata olives. Squeeze half a lemon over it and a dash of balsamic vinegar. This is what I eat about four nights a week.
Below is my favorite tomato of the year. It's a heirloom of some kind (we planted an assortment of seeds and forgot what was what). That's a quarter beside it. Huge! It took up the entire plate. Tomatoes anyone?
