Delicious tomato soup begins with fresh tomatoes. Hopefully you have some tomatoes fresh from your garden, because nothing quite compares to the taste of a home grown tomato. If not, try to get some from your local farmers market rather than the supermarket. Now that you have your tomatoes, check to make sure you have the rest of the ingredients listed below, and let's start making our fresh tomato soup with  this easy recipe!

      MMmmm... I love Campbells tomato soup. I've never tried making soup with fresh tomatoes, but I'd imagine that if I love canned tomato soup-homemade would be even better. I'm planning to grow a few vegetables this year including tomatoes, so I'll bookmark your recipe and try it out when I start harvesting some tomatoes.
