first tomato

I've been very in love with my little container garden.  I can't wait until next summer when I get the real thing.  But for now a few pots will do nicely.

Friday night we had our first ripe tomato and it was a beauty.
It reminds me of one of the books I used to read often to Maddy and Mia - "First Tomato" by Rosemary Wells.

This, with that lovely basil…. well, it called for a little caprese.  So my darling husband bought some fresh mozzarella for me to enjoy the first fruits.
The problem?  I sliced open that bad boy and it was mealy!!  Oh poop.  What a disappointment.  So the first one looked pretty but didn't turn out so well.  Hopefully the others that don't look quite so fabulous will taste better!
