Tomatoes Tomatoes Tomatoes

The field is full of ripe tomatoes!  I’ve been harvesting the plants a couple of times a week to keep up with all bounty.

Sweetie a cherry tomato variety

At Quarter Acre we grow 10 different varieties of beautifully delicious tomatoes.  Right now we are harvesting: gold nugget, sweetie, glacier, cosmonant, green zebra, and black japanese trifele.  The other four varieties are late season large heirlooms and should start to ripen in the next few weeks.

The commingling of tomatoes at market

At home I have been including tomatoes in every meal.  I’m still waiting for the harvest to kick into high gear to be able to make sauce and preserve some summer flavor for the winter.
