YOU SAY TOMATO, I SAY TOMAHTO?

Honestly, I prefer the British way. Too many Masterpiece Theatres and BBC productions I suppose, but that’s another story!

The tomatoes are   s l  o  w  l  y   starting to trickle in!!! Our customers have been constantly asking us, “You have any heirlooms yet?” Right now, we don’t have enough surplus to sell just yet, but hopefully soon!

Handful of heirlooms

Although heirloom tomatoes are finicky to grow, you can’t beat their wonderful colors and exceptional taste. This year, though, we planted more hybrid varieties due to the fact that heirlooms are very susceptible to disease and flux in temperatures — delicate little things they are!
