Here it is! The first vine ripened tomato for the season. Grown on my patio, it had the jump by 3 weeks on the ones planted in the field, so naturally it was going to go red first. Boy did I have a hard time holding back the pests… The most threatening being Natasha who has just left to head back home to Melbourne. She has been circling the patio for a week, innocently asking when I thought they would be ripe. Well Tash, I’d say in about a couple of days. Just have to keep Baba Ganoush (our Labrador) away and the bruschetta is all mine!
