It may sound silly to most people, but I get an adrenaline rush from picking first large slicing tomato. It's part of the waiting since winter and watching them grow. Especially when it happens to be one of the "purple" or "black" varieties like this time - Black Krim.
The taste is far more superior than anything you can get in a store, and I love the complex flavors. Besides, it makes for a pretty darn good snack for my afternoon :)
So, what makes you excited when you know it's almost time to harvest..
