The first BLT of summer

BLTLast night on the way home from Zionsville I noticed that our neighborhood honor-system farm stand had reopened, and that they had fresh tomatoes. These tomatoes are homegrown on our neighbors' farm six miles away in Fayette, and they look it -- irregular and imperfectly shaped, but vine-ripened and ready to eat.

This morning's breakfast was a treat -- two slices of whole-grain toast, a few generous dollops of mayonnaise, a few slices of crisp, meaty bacon, some crunchy lettuce and a stack of several thin slices of tomato, served on the deck with fresh coffee. The first crop of love apples is in, and life is good.
