Today I ventured out to the backyard to look for an appropriate place for my garden bee. After scoping out the garden, I decided to place my bee in the tomato patch. I’m a born-and-bred-in-the-city kind of girl who never developed an interest for gardening, so the cucumbers and tomatoes that are grown in the backyard are tended to by my parents. In theory, I should help cultivate the tomatoes, since I eat them like some people eat jelly beans (like a chipmunk, according to my mom).
One of the ways I enjoy tomatoes is in a simple salad, comprised of nothing but romaine lettuce and cherry tomatoes, dressed with a drizzle of white balsamic fig-infused vinegar and a splash of olive oil. It’s a straightforward and uncomplicated way to enjoy the freshness of homegrown cherry tomatoes.
