|The End for 2010|
|First Harvest of the Season 2010|
|Sam & Madeline pick our tomatoes|
We planted many heirlooms this year, harder to grow, but so worth it. The whole experience is an affirmation that beauty is only skin deep. Heirlooms are open pollinated, not hybrids, that look like they've grown wild. They're all different lumpy shapes and sizes, with scarred splits in the delicate skin and the flesh is firm, sweet, rich, lush, and smoky tasting. I love to eat them straight out of the garden, like apples, hanging over the sink with the juice dribbling down my chin. I have been excited to learn that, besides being funny looking

We planted less of everything this year, so we only froze a few of our tomatoes and gave away those we couldn’t eat at three meals a day sliced, diced, minced and roasted, in sandwiches, sauces, and stews. The office attorneys and staff got lots and we had enough get ripe at once during the summer to serve them on Sunday in Finlay Park at Food Not Bombs.
