Ain’t nothin’ in the world that I like better
Than bacon & lettuce & homegrown tomatoes
Up in the mornin’ out in the garden
Get you a ripe one don’t get a hard one
Plant `em in the spring eat `em in the summer
All winter with out `em’s a culinary bummer
I forget all about the sweatin’ & diggin’
Every time I go out & pick me a big one
Homegrown tomatoes homegrown tomatoes
What’d life be without homegrown tomatoes
Only two things that money can’t buy
That’s true love & homegrown tomatoes
Yesterday I harvested my first ‘Brandywine’ tomato, it was large, perfectly pinky red, soft to the touch and OH-SO-DELICIOUS!!!
We enjoyed it for breakfast yesterday paired with our own home raised and home cured bacon. There was lettuce from the farmers market and sourdough bread from a local shop. We put an egg ours making them more BELTs than BLTs.
This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy tomatoes in the summer, perhaps only topped by eating them with a little salt. The window for ‘Brandywine’ tomatoes is so small I’ll be eating them for every meal until frost.
What’s your favorite way to enjoy the first juicy beefsteak tomato of the season?Filed under Quote | Comments (6)
