I loved how big and strong they looked. How watery they felt in the mouth. Fresh and light in the same time
I kept them for my hubby, knowing how much he’d enjoy les premiers tomat du jardin.
I also plan cherry tomatoes, not much only 4 small tree, that's just for myself , every day Most of the time while I watering the garden, I can just pick and eat them, they are so fresh and yummy.
It’s a small and simple thing, and it might sound silly, but these tomatoes made me feel very excited. And happy. Because my hubby loved them. Because I grew them myself.
Every day. Most of the time, I used them in salads or salsa sauce. But at other times, we preferred to eat them nature as an appetiser. or if some of green tomate so tempting to eat, I made a Sambal Hijau ( spicy green chilly blend with green tomat ), it always remain me of Sambal Ijo from Padang restaurant in Jakarta.
