Off the plant

There are a couple of things your should know about tomatoes: never refrigerate them as they turn mealy. And they really are at their best right off the plant.

Salt heightens their flavor, too. Here are some wonderful tiny tomatoes I picked this morning for a snack at work. The coin is there to show the scale. These are wonderfully intensely sweet with that ephemeral ripe tartness that just isn't captured easily. Try it, and you understand why people are obsessed with with growing them.

It's tomato season, folks. Hallelujah.
