Made a run to the local "local market" during lunch. Grabbed a few of these beauties. Still early for tomatoes here in East GA but these are from Northern Florida according to the sign. 

Fresh tomato. Fresh bakery soft white bread. Mayo on both slices. Salt and pepper. 

As Braves outfielder Otis Nixon said in 1992 "It just don't get no better". Looking forward to lots of fresh tomato sammies this season.

    Short growing season up here in MN so we just got our tomato plants in the ground. Can't wait for some fresh off the vine!

    I really gotta find some Duke's and see what all the hype is about.

    @FrostyEgg the hype may be the fact that it takes me, and I'm sure many others, back to when I was a kid, sitting on grandma's back porch literally eating tomato sandwiches with her and grandpa on a steamy afternoon in Savannah GA. Extra sweet tea does the same for me. Back when there were no cell phones, email addresses, and folks knew and helped their neighbor. 

    Sorry...back to work now. Remotely of course thanks to the internet, laptops, Cell phones, and email addresses...lol

    Love ‘em. I’ll eat them until the acid hurts my lips/mouth.

    Yeah I tend to riff on this theme too by adding some bacon and then some lettuce.

    I have been fortunate to find good maters all winter this past year. My produce establishment here in Ellijay gets theirs from Tennessee Amish, I assume they are grown in greenhouses. Looking forward to the local (later), for mater sammies. You are spot on with fresh bread and Dukes. Enjoy your eatin.

    Same here.  The past few years I have been buying an "on the vine" brand that they sell at the local grocer.  Closest I have ever found to home-grown!

    I drove by the place once, by accident, and it is a HUGE grow house.  At night, you can see it for miles!  I fear they built it in hopes another botanical product becomes "legal" and they will quit growing tomatoes.  

    Yours sounds more sustainable as I doubt the Amish will transition from tomatoes to the Devil's lettuce.

    BLT's at home for sure. However when someone in the office brings in fresh tomatoes there is nothing better than a toasted tomato sangwich with lots of mayo with SPOGOS for the win.
