We picked the first red tomato last night and it was absolutely the most delicious thing I have eaten since last summer!  We have another turning, should be ready soon.  I have 15 plants, so will have loads before long.  Last night we also had beets and green beans from the garden, made a salad with (store-bought ) lettuce and broccoli and sugar snap peas.

We picked the first tomato this past weekend and let my granddaughter (19 months old) carry it to the house.  By the time we got to the house she'd eaten most of it!  LOL

 I'm in central Missouri, but we had a very cold and wet spring.  I put in the tomato plants the middle of May.  It also depends on variety, that one was a Better Boy but I have several varieties including many heirloom types.

Lucky we have so many plants( think 50 or more) and only green matoes some have started rotting due to all the rain. We did  bring in some to ripen in the window sill and that seems to be working well.. :) I'm glad someone is getting stuff from their gardens.. So fair we've got corn, beets, greens, potatoes, and tons of different kinds of squash and cucumbers. oh and green beans.
