Finally some ripe tomatoes!!!

So I guess it's tomato salad time - and this was like a BLT - delicious! Although I have to admit the the yellow pear tomatoes are kind of mealy. It's actually trickier than I thought to grow your own - too much water, not enough water - how much and when to fertilize... the good news is I've got a lot more coming!

Bacon Arugula and Tomato Salad served 2

4 slices good thick bacon
2 cups arugula
large handful of cherry tomatoes sliced in half or couple larger tomatoes cut into chunks
1/2 garlic clove finely chopped
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

Fry the bacon until crisp, then tear into chunks. In a small bowl whisk a little of the bacon grease with garlic, mayo and vinegar. Mix all together and season with lots of freshly ground pepper.
