Tomatoes! Okay...Tomato (singular)

A full 2 weeks earlier than last year, I have my first garden tomato!  The plants are growing like crazy right now and I'm thinking about transplanting some baby tomato plants that sprang up in the kale and carrot beds into a more spacious area.  That means even more tomatoes!  I'm greedy when it comes to tomatoes.

I always devote 2 beds to tomatoes and basil.

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I didn't stop to take a photo of this first full sized tomato from the garden. I immediately ran inside, sliced it and made a tomato sandwich.  Layers of fresh bread, Veganaise, huge basil leaves, heirloom tomato, salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Is anything better?

Why stop and snap a photo when there's a tomato waiting? I see no reason!

Running inside and slicing it immediately sounds the best course of action. I agree with each of your sandwich ingredients - hooray for early tomato!
