Ripening Tomatoes 1PPD 9/5/09

You might imagine from the number of 1PPD photos I've taken of tomatoes that I loved to eat them. But the truth is, while I do have a fondness for sungold cherry tomatoes right off the vine, for the most part, I'd prefer to leave the raw tomatoes - at least until they've been turned into sauce.
The reason I have taken so many pictures of them is that they're gorgeous - full of texture and color. And like many things in the garden, they're ephemeral... in a few weeks, they'll be gone until next year.
