It wasn't long after TV host turned TV mogul (and all around "live your best life" champion) Oprah Winfrey posted her first Instagram photo in April 2012 that she became one of the social-media network's most charming celebrities. Was it the gratuitous shots of her garden's bounty? Or the casual photo-ops with fellow celebrities? Maybe it's the captions: "Don't you love it when a tomato is real?" reads a photo of Oprah and (surprise!) some tomatoes. No matter the reason, these are our favorites.
First off, she loves her veggies.
Harvest Day ... just picked off the vine fava beans, herbs , and strawberries. #ilovemygarden
Don't you love it when a tomato is real? Just picked these. #harvestday
