Our garden's first tomatoes are ripe, and the pugs and I are so happy:
The one at the top of the bowl, below, is an odd fellow. It's a goofy-looking version of "Champion":
The orangey-red, faintly mottled ones are "Mr. Stripey," and the littlest ones are "Super Sweet 100's":
I think tomatoes are gorgeous, whether they are dusty right out of the garden or freshly washed:
Here's today's haul:
(There used to be more of the cherry-sized ones, but the pugs successfully shook me down for a few.)
I cut up the Mr. Stripeys and placed them all over a frozen pizza, drizzled a little olive oil over everything, and baked as directed. It's a delicious, fast way to improve a ready-made pizza on a busy night.
