Tomatoes ~ Vegetable of the Week

Hi Friends!
Today we are talking about the Tomato!  I love tomatoes! Growing them and eating them since my childhood has been one of my favorite memories.

I remember as a young teen, going out to the Garden with my Dad and picking a nice, ripe, red, juicy tomato from off the vine. Dad would have a bucket of water there to rinse off the fruit and then a salt shaker to add a bit of salt to the tomato.  We would bite the tomatoes like you would bite an apple. Then we would salt the open bite and eat it just like that till we got to the top stem area.  The taste of a fresh tomato can't be compared to the ones in the Supermarkets. Fresh tomatoes in a nice Marinara Sauce are delicious! Or just on a slice of bread for a quick snack! Oh I love Tomatoes!

So here are a few of our tomato photos from this year. Enjoy the Photo Show!
