First tomatoes of the 2012 season

2012 tomatoesThis year my family’s going to be blessed with lots of tomatoes in several different shapes and sizes. All red though – next year I hope we plant some of those cooky purple, yellow and striped varieties. Ivan Wei, my son and future urban farmer, is our community garden plot’s keeper and with the good help he’s getting from little brothers Youssef and Ari, I know everything they produce is going to be delicious and nutritious! These are the first harvest of tomatoes from this year – aren’t they beautiful? And believe me, they taste just as good as they look. The small ones even taste “cute”.
