A few years ago when we first started building our house and were living in an RV on the property we got the surprise of tomatoes growing by the gray water drain hose. We must have run some seeds down the kitchen sink and they just started grown wild. They were big and tasted great.
Since then every year we plant tomatoes on our front porch. Most times they are quite good, always better than from the store. This year we saved some seeds from some cherry tomatoes Angi’s brother sent down from Indiana. We picked a couple that were ripe to have with lunch today and took some photos.
The photos were shot on our porch in full direct Florida sun. Angi grabbed some old dirty visqueen and used it as a scrim. The lighting quality is surprisingly good.
As you can see they were very small. They tasted OK not spectacular but with some salt and pepper on the slices they were just fine.
The backgrounds to the photos are some 14 x 14 handmade tiles that an artist friend of ours Angel DiCosola made for us years and years ago. They had straw and rice applied to the clay body then fired and burned out.
