Palooza is something that I overheard a few times today, although I’m not sure it was regarding tomatoes. It could have been beans or cukes, but there was a lot of all these things. I love the way the veggies look as they are waiting to get into the boxes, and I love the way the room smells. The happy and hard-working workers that are preparing them are hard not to love as well!
These tomatoes are some of our heirloom varieties. These are (clockwise from the bottom) ‘Black Krim’ (3), ‘Brandywine’ (3), Wisconsin 55′ (3), ‘Gregorii’s Altai’ (2), ‘Ruby Gold’ (1) and in the center, ‘Garden Peach’. These are all slightly under-ripe except for the Garden peaches.
