After about 10 minutes of trying to come up with a catchy title for this blog post, I ended up with “Tomatoes!”. That’s the only one that captured my excitement well enough for just having picked and eaten our first tomatoes of the season within the last week. Oh how I’ve missed that taste!

I am trying to write another post from my phone, outside here as a field correspondent for Blandria’s Backyard Garden, but it’s 102 degrees according to the thermometer, and I am sweating already, so we’ll make this quick with a few snapshots of the tomatoes.

Pictured here: Brandywine (the largest), Cherokee Purple (the deep red one), Yellow Pear (the ones that are yellow and look like pears), and one mistake pulled off by accident.

    I laughed out loud at the first sentence of this post.

    And, they look delicious!

    I wish I was there to eat that cherokee purple and pet that cat. Beautiful photos too!

    Congratulations! The first tomatoes are always exciting, harbingers of delicious things to come. Butterball appears to have slimmed down some, too.

      Pat, you are right! Butterball is quite the slim cat these days. I know he can tell that he’s lost weight too, with the way he struts around the backyard now. 😉

    Those look so beautiful. I had no idea tomatoes could look so colorful.
