Here Sally and Princess are eating some of the older sugar snap peas vines that we cleaned out to make room for the next crop planned for that space.

Of course, we don’t usually follow up with the rest of the plant for dessert. 🤣 You Might Also Like Packing the van for the farmer’s market is an art form unto itself. This thing is full all the way to the front. Good thing our Miss Wendy is the queen of Tetris! July 7, 2018 The cherry tomatoes are going gangbusters! We’ll have our 4 variety Tomato Medley Pack this Saturday at Poplar Head farmers market in Dothan. Stop by and check them out! The variety pack includes: Sun Gold – Has an intense fruity flavor. Exceptionally sweet, bright tangerine-orange cherry tomatoes. Their tendency to split precludes shipping, making these an exclusively fresh-market treat. BHN 624 – (who named this?) A cross between a grape tomato and a cherry tomato. The oval shape of a grape, the juicy consistency of a cherry, and an excellent, sweet-rich flavor. Nice, deep red color. Black Cherry – Sweet and robust. The fruits are almost black in color. (They look more pink to me.) The flavor is dynamic – much like an heirloom. Indigo Cherry Drops – Deep, rosy-red with a black-purple cast that is bursting with sweet flavor. High antioxidant (anthocyanin) from the purple as blueberries have.
