It's Tomato Picking Time!

I hope you saw my Instagram post @MarthaStewart48. It's that time of year again - the tomatoes are ready!

We started picking our first juicy, sweet tomatoes this week. Tomatoes, Solanum lycopersicum, have long been one of America’s favorite garden vegetables. They are planted in late spring and then anywhere from 60 to 100 days later, those bold red, sun-ripened fruits are ready to harvest and enjoy. And, they’re filled with excellent antioxidants and vitamins.

Here are some photos.
