The World's Most Divine Tomatoes

Last weekend at the Gardeners' Market I traded an oven mitt for a sack full of slicing tomatoes. These tomatoes were in all sorts of pretty colors, orange and red and near-black. And the other day I cracked one open and put it on my sandwich.

MMMM! Divine tomato goodness! Just at the peak of ripeness, each of these meaty tomatoes had as much flavor as two or three pathetic storebought tomatoes. Each delicious slice tingled my tastebuds!

Maybe I should set a few of those out as examples to my tomato plants. "See? If you'd just ripen, you could look like this!! And it would be you I'm praising on my blog, instead of these other foreign tomatoes!"
