Good Eating. First Homegrown Tomato
Photograph - Indoor Color Photo
The first ripened homegrown tomato of the spring season gets special treatment. This one, a “Bonnie Centennial, 100th Anniversary,” is displayed on a lunch plate on a bed of green Bibb lettuce, cut in sections, and filled with tuna salad. All ingredients are organic, making this an ideal Paleo meal.
What began as a four-inch-tall plant from the nursery grew unbelievably fast, following the Texas “snowpocalypse,” as we call it here. Everything in the yard appeared to have died, but eventually many things came back stronger and better than ever. The big surprise was the growth rate of all the vegetables! Most started out tiny, like this one, but soon outgrew this gardener’s tallest cages. I even had volunteer cherry tomatoes, one of which relocated itself from one end of the garden to the other. It was slower to get started but is now producing.
