First Tomato of the Season

 My great-grandfather, Carl Rollwitz, saved seeds from his Early Annie heirloom tomato plants since the 1930s.  They have been handed down to my grandfather, my mother, and now me.  These tomatoes are almost seed-free, juicy, and meaty.

So, of course, the girls get to eat the first ripe tomato!  They ate the tomato quickly, then slurped up the juice from the bowl.

What a great treat.
