Sorry, carrots. My apologies, green beans. My regrets even to you, wonderful fresh herbs. I would never dream of having a favorite child, but I feel no guilt about preferring one crop far above all the others. Oh, tomatoes, you are the whole reason I started vegetable gardening in the first place. You are like candy to me. I'm so happy that we have reached the time when I can head out in the yard each day and find some of you bright red (or bright yellow), sun-warmed, and perfect with a level of deliciousness right off the vine that can never be matched in any grocery store or even farmer's market.
