I have had maybe six tomatoes so far. I just finished a tomato sandwich liberally sprinkled with black pepper. I regret I can no longer grind my pepper myself but then, that's one of just about everything I can't do.
I have made a pig of myself eating those tomatoes. If you could see me attempting to slice one, you'd roll. These Early Girl tomatoes are very firm even tho ripe. I sharpened the knife and tried to cut thru with pressure from my left hand. Not a lot of luck. I stabbed them with a fork and tried to hold it still with my inner elbow right arm, as the tomato rested in the saucer so as to slice. I finally got one butchered and eaten.
