On Wednesday I noticed that one of the big tomatoes was starting to ripen. As I thought, it’s a Silvery Fir Tree. I’ve been picking a few Tess’s Land Race Currant and Sungold Cherry tomatoes, but no large tomatoes.
Saturday it was finally ready to harvest. I plucked it from the plant, brought it inside, sliced it and we enjoyed it on a sandwich with local bacon and homegrown arugula on homemade sourdough bread. BLT’s are the perfect summer meal, super quick, easy and so delicious – they’re even great for breakfast! Is there really a better way to enjoy your first tomato?
