Heirloom Tomatoe Salad

This is my first year venturing into the farm to table concept.  My dad and husband created a beautiful vegetable garden for me in our side yard.  I may one day blog about it, however, this first year has been filled with a lot of trial and error.

My heirloom tomatoes are growing perfectly.  It's just not growing fast enough.  The plants are tall and gorgeous but the tomatoes have been small and green forever!  I just couldn't wait any longer.

I couldn't help myself, so I bought a few heirloom tomatoes at the market.  I guess it will have to be considered practice for when the tomatoes in my garden are finally ready.

The basil is from my garden, so that was the only farm to table item in my dish today.  I had to take a little credit for growing something in my yard.
