You have more will power then I do, I'd never be able to wait long enough to take a picture. Rolling on the floor laughing You all will have to wait for the second one, but that's a long time off yet for me.

Yes! the first ripe ones get eaten out in the garden!
I am having cherry tomatoes out in the garden.
Sunsugar, Orange Zinger and the basket ones ? Tumbler?
(Purchased the basket so don't know which variety.)

Ha, I wanted to be able to post here on the first red tomato thread so I had to wait and get a shot. But I took it inside and actually sliced it with a knife and ate it over the kitchen sink.

Rita you're my garden soulmate. And to think I didn't like tomatoes as a child. Now I'm gobbling them raw and cooked every which way.

Tomatoes, at least the ones from the garden, are one of the best things in life! Thumbs up

It is not even red but it is ripe. This is a Lemon Boy.



I actually picked two of them today. One was really small and totally ripe and I quickly ate it. Boy was it ever good.
