Big Tomato

This tomato was from our garden last spring. Can you imagine how big it is with a regular spoon placed on the right side? I have never seen any tomatoes as big this.
.
Our family loves eating tomatoes. It is always present in the table on every meal. We had bunches of them during summer that aside from preserving most of them into tomato juice and salsa, there are still plenty of them left that Dad had decided to sell some of them. Iwas amazed at how they sell it. This is how:
They put a table along side on the road with the poster that tells the tomatoes are for sale, at $1 a bucket. What amazed was, people just dropped by, picked up the tomatoes and left the money in the empty bucket, no attending needed. I asked one time, '' What if they pick up the tomato and don't pay?'' My dad-in-law answered, ''Well, if they like to have the tomatoes and don't have the money, they can have it.'' God bless my very kind dad-in-law.

We love tomatoes too and there is never a lunch without them. We use them a lot in our cooking too! I eat only salads and fruit in the evenings and so I end up eating more tomatoes than anyone else at home.
