Tomatoes. Olive oil. Salt.Cut larger tomatoes into halves or quarters and place cut side up on a baking dish. Sprinkle lightly with salt. I use kosher salt because I like the large, airy flakes.

It's great to see kids interested in gardening and knowing they will take what they've learned about gardening in their formative years and apply them throughout their lives. The program Food to Grow On developed by Ms. Yakabe and Ms. Edwards from the Vallejo Charter School allow the kids to learn about soil, seed, plant growth, harvest, food production, and everything in between.
At the garden, even the teachers got to learn something about tomatoes, which they in turn will teach their students and others. Here's a post from Organic Gardening Magazine on tomatoes: bit.ly/OGTomatoTips
