Tomatoes of Our Very Own

Finally the tomato harvest has begun. Sweet 100's are small , but so delicious. We should have these from now until frost.

These little yellow pear tomatoes are a favorite of mine. Some years I can't find them. This year I did. I cut them lengthwise and mix them with halved cherry tomatoes. I like the different shapes and colors. I add garlic, olive oil, fresh basil, pepper, a little salt and wine vinegar and chill slightly. Served over fresh garden lettuce it's a dish ready for a party . Best of all it's really delicious

The tricky part is to keep from eating those sweet little tomatoes before I get them out of the garden.
