Welcoming the Tomatoes

We’ve been eating lots of tomatoes lately. ¬†Garden-fresh tomatoes are one of the things that make summer so wonderfully delicious.

We have six varieties coming in now, the best of which are the heirloom German Johnsons, and we have more on the way, set to mature in about a month.

After losing our tomato crop to blight last year it’s a great relief to have them coming in strong.

We’re eating very well these days. ¬†We’re also harvesting peppers, eggplant, squash, zucchini, cucumbers, green beans, October beans, potatoes and onions.
