Tomatoes, giving an heirloom quality to your kitchen
"A night without moon &

Every year we plant too much.  This year we diversified and thought were had planted too little.  Foolish Gardeners!

The one tomato plant I did not think was going to make it was a Russian variety.  The woman we bought it from had brought seeds from her homeland.  They were heirlooms handed down through generations.

Now, this plant offers the most beautiful fruit in our garden this year.  Varied in shape and color, their distortions lend to their perfection. They are giving a richness and flavor to our favorite recipes and inspiring some new ideas for holiday gift-giving.  While we enjoy these treasures, our freezer is filling up with bags of old favorites.  Winter will feel warmers when we get to enjoy them.

If you love tomatoes as I do,  you might consider taking part in Red Fire Farm's Tomato Festival. This year it is both in-person and virtual.
