While I don’t have records I’m sure this is the earliest I have ever had a red tomato. I picked the tomato on June 17 although we will enjoy it with dinner tomorrow. Why pick it early you say? Last year our resident chipmunks took a chunk out of every early tomato that ripened I guess to see if they like tomatoes. Apparently they do not since they left the rest of the tomato uneaten — but I mean who wants to eat someone’s leftovers! So this year I decided to take no chances. And to add to our meal tomorrow we will have one tomato, one cucumber and a kholrabi. Bon appetit!
