Tomato and Basil

I have a variation of tomato and basil photos taken from pretty much every summer since I started gardening and taking digital photos. Even so I can't stop myself, especially when it involves "the first tomato".
Red round tomatoes are from Thursday farmer's market at Everedy Square, and orange small tomato is from our own garden along with basil and raspberries.

We didn't have any fresh mozzarella cheese so we used feta cheese stored in brine. They were quite good together but I think I still miss the classic combination. I am going to stop by Juliette and pick up some hand-made mozzarella cheese.

We will see cherry tomatoes at the farmer's market pretty soon (maybe this week) followed by gorgeous heirloom tomatoes. Summer is here.

I know what you mean about the photos - every year I photograph the progression of my tomato plants. Why?!?! It's nearly impossible to tell one year from the next.

That's true food-garden love.
