First Tomato of the Year
Harvested our first tomato of the year. Unfortunately it wasn't perfect, it'd split and something, maybe birds, had been at the flesh, but we got 3/4 of it. Tasted great. Today is also the day the NYTimes reviews the book on Florida tomatoes. The reviewer liked it. I suspect I'll have reservations. July 6 to maybe Oct 15 marks the outer limits of our garden tomatoes. For the rest of the year we have to rely on hothouse tomatoes or tomatoes which have to travel, meaning they lose some flavor. There's always a tradeoff.
