Anticipating Tomatoes

Tomatoes are by far the thing I look forward to most in the growing season. We've been watching the green tomatoes ripen day by day in the heat of high summer, and at long last our anticipation is coming to an end as the first of the early varieties are ready to be harvested.

Rose took our friend and CSA member Emily out to see the cherry tomatoes today and taught her how to find the ones that are just right to eat. Emily learned to leave the green tomatoes alone and pick the juicy red ones that have attained that perfect level of sweetness.

What veggie do you most look forward to eating in-season?
