Our tomatoes are thriving this year: a bumper crop. Today, in the NY Times there was an article in homage to local grown tomatoes.
"Isn't it lucky that just when it’s too hot to cook on the East Coast, tomatoes are at their sweetest, ripest and juiciest? Or at least it feels that way, like a serendipitous reward for suffering through a heat wave...That’s the saving grace: vine-ripened tomatoes are finally here. Year-round hot house tomatoes don’t begin to compare."
