Let’s face it… store bought tomatoes pretty much suck. I can count the number of truly good ones that I have purchased at a grocery store in the past 20 years on one hand (maybe). What passes for tomatoes in grocery stores (at least in the US) is flavorless, watery and very unsatisfying. That’s why there are always several “flights” of tomatoes planted in my backyard garden. I plant twice as much as I need in each flight because the birds are gonna get theirs! The first flight is about ready for picking and I’m going to the cheese shop for some fresh mozzarella. I’ll combine the maters with the cheese and some fresh basil (also from the garden) and drizzle it with a bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Yum.
