At the Tomato Field

Tomato is one of my favorite fruits. I grew up eating them as a snack, as kids can eat an apple. We went to a nearby field, the same one where we collected the strawberries of the prior pictures, and collected 100 lbs of delicious tomatoes... yes, believe me... you read correctly... 100.

I made this collage to show you the beauty of them on the field. The picture on the lower right was taken already at home when we were washing and organizing them.

You are probably asking what am I going to do with 100 lbs of tomatoes. The answer is easy... my favorite thing is to make roasted tomato sauce, which I will show you in a separate collage, that I freeze and use it instead of the one bought at the supermarket. Another one is "pico de gallo" which is the Mexican fresh sauce to eat with fried tortillas. A third one is the delicious Spanish Gazpacho, that I just finished eating for lunch.

Thank you for your views, comments, and FAVs. I really appreciate them.
These are so beautiful, what a lovely display. well photographed.

I remember doing this too when I lived in Florida in the 70's. Only because I grew up in Maine I just didn't develop a fondness for Florida tomatoes they just don't have the same flavor.

@joansmor I used to grow them in my garden, but my physical health is not the best to do it. I like these tomatoes because they are picked from the plant when they are ripe. And besides, there is a great difference in price and flavor from the ones in the supermarket.

@anazad511 And I will be waiting months to get fresh one from my farm stand. But good things are worth waiting for.
