I think home grown tomatoes are most kitchen gardeners favourite vegetable.
We have tomatoes from seeds we germinated and a lot of self seeded tomatoes which just appeared in our garden when we spread out the contents of our worm farms.
We eat the tomatoes as a snack straight from the vine, with our basil and rocket salads, add them to frittatas and just freeze them whole to be cooked with onion and thyme in autumn when the vines have wilted.
We are having warm humid weather in Adelaide at the moment and new tomato self sown seedlings are appearing in the garden.
March will be warm so I expect we shall have tomatoes and fresh basil for a while yet.
The delicious pinkish tomato is called Eva Purple Ball, it is a gorgeous looking tomato.
