Oh, Baby!

Saturday, June 17, 2006
I was casually watering the tomato plants yesterday evening when I saw it -- our first tomato of the year -- a tiny San Marzano. This one aspires to mingle with our garlic and herbs when it grows up -- putting all of its tomatoey goodness into becoming a savory, mouthwatering sauce.

Good morning C & C! Congrats on that baby San Marzano. The garlic scape recipe looked absolutely fab-U-lous. I am going to make some tonite. Meanwhile, what kind of camera are you using to take your photos? The calendula pictures are so very beautiful.........

Christa, I was so excited when our first baby tomato showed up, so I know just how you're feeling! I can't wait until some of these little ones are ready to eat. They're going to be lucky if they make it to the kitchen before they get chomped...

are they long tomatoes rather than round?The excitement of seeing something growing to its potential is worth all the effort and worry!!

Mary Ann,
My camera is a Nikon D50. Glad you're enjoying the photos.

I hear you about the tomatoes not making it home to the kitchen! We'll probably eat the first few right in the garden.

Yes, these are the long or "plum-type" of tomato. We've planted some round ones also -- for slices on our sandwiches. Can't wait!
