There are a number of reasons I love when the tomatoes start appearing red (or yellow).  Mainly it’s because I rarely eat a fresh tomato the rest of year and have been relying on tinned and passata/purees etc.  The wait for a home grown tomato is worth it – a tomato sandwich is all that’s needed for lunch at this time of year such is the flavour.   I’m also slicing up a variety and eating with some shaved cucumber, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and basil +/- rocket.  In a little while I’ll have so many tomatoes I’ll be able to make roast fresh tomato soup – what a luxury!
