I am so ready for our garden-grown tomatoes, but instead I had to settle for ones from the grocery store. The basil is homegrown, however, and the whole concoction is one of my favorite things of summer. I LOVE a caprese (tomato-mozzarella) salad. This is one of the first ways I started to eat tomatoes, back when I was expecting Peyton. I love biting into a ripe tomato covered with the good mozzarella, balsamic vinegar, basil, and a little olive oil. YUM! Hopefully our 7 tomato plants will give us a good yield this summer and we won't have to buy any from the store of farmer's market. We do have some little tiny baby tomatoes, but nothing ripe yet.
