But after being up late the night before preparing things, then getting up at 4 to load and drive, and being out in the South Alabama heat for 5 hours, we usually feel like one of our wilted table displays when we finally get back home.Next PostThe 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.

Just rather startling up close at face level. 😀 August 23, 2018 Did you know that when you eat #asparagus, you’re actually eating an unopened baby fern? Here’s a picture of what a mature asparagus looks like. We eventually have to quit picking them for sale and let them grow, so they build up energy for next years harvest.
