We ate ours with dinner last night. Very delicious, especially since we never buy supermarket tomatoes so it's been about 7 months since we had any fresh tomatoes although in the meantime we've had soups and sauces made from last year's harvest.

I got my first ripe tomatoes last week. Sun Gold cherry tomatoes I started from seed.  I get a few ripe ones every day but soon I'll be getting gallons of them --from two plants. They're very prolific (and delicious).   I also have a Brandywine that will be ripe soon. The others will be a little longer. I have 8 plants all together plus some volunteers that popped up from last year.  Love, love, love home grown tomatoes.

Me too, had the first delicious tomato just over a week ago.  Such intense tomato taste!!  Nothing else says fresh like a tomato straight from the garden.
