Yay! Tomatoes!

weekly CSA produce share
It’s been a year since we’ve had real tomatoes, and we’re so looking forward to them.

Yes, right there in the center, tomatoes! The first of the season. We’re so lucky, because our farmer knows that tomatoes are the one produce item that you just cannot buy in the store and have it taste good, so he grows tomatoes by the acre. All different varieties. One year we went up for the annual open house in June, and farmer Frank explained that he called “Tomato Bob” and had him send something like 20 of each variety of tomato available. There were over 200 varieties. Yes, each different. Some purple, some black, some green, some tiny, some pleated, well, you get the idea. Far more than you could possibly have at a supermarket.

So, in our share, we received:

  • Green garlic (traded for more artichokes)
  • Artichokes (4)
  • New red potatoes (10)
  • Red Russian kale (1 bunch)
  • Broccoli (1 head)
  • Cauliflower (1 head)
  • Spring red onion (1)
  • Tomatoes on the vine (1 basket)
