First Taste of First Fruits

I'm so excited! Several of the tomatoes have turned ripe and it's time for picking!

I didn't realize that these stupice tomatoes grew small. The champion tomatoes grow larger but unfortunately those didn't really produce much. Only one grew and it never got ripe. Then I discovered this hole! What the heck! Something burrowed inside it. =(

I've got four ripe stupice tomatoes. The basil plants haven't fared well though. But I was able to get a few leaves. So I don't think I have enough to make bruschetta.

So I'm thinking, I'll make an omelet!

So this is it! The first taste of my first fruits! It was amazing! The fresh grown tomatoes tasted vibrantly juicy. The taste just exploded in my mouth! And the basil, oh what a difference! Yummers!
