Such a treat first thing in the morning! Same for the blueberries – but those won’t last the day if the birds spy the ripe ones! :happyflower: On July 16, 2011 at 12:05 pm Log in to Reply Barbee says: Oh, yummm! Wish I were there 🙂 On July 16, 2011 at 12:43 pm Log in to Reply Darlene says: Homegrown tomatoes are my favorite. I went to the farmers market a week ago and tomatoes were $1.25 each. Ouch!

They usually ripen up here before the full size ones and kind of tide us over until the big ones are ready. My husband doesn’t like them as well as big ones, that’s why we do the global bucket thing. That is the only way I can grow decent regular size tomatoes. Now if I could just keep the neighbor kids from picking them all before they ripen. :hissyfit: On July 16, 2011 at 1:28 pm Log in to Reply RuralGirl says: I would so be inhaling those first tomatos!

I planted tomatoes from seed this year, but I bought one early girl plant just in case I killed all the others. They all lived, but they’ll ripen much later and I’m glad to have the early girl. Especially today. On July 16, 2011 at 4:53 pm Log in to Reply BuckeyeGirl says: You really should do quality control you know Suzanne! Need to make sure every one of them is top quality!
