Getting To Know Your Vegetables

July 28, 2019



Before we get into a tomato discussion, let me briefly tell you that the eggplant is ready to be harvested.  I'll highlight these next week, but I will tell you that these beauties are around 2 pounds and have a very pretty purple color.


Since many of you love tomatoes and they will be around for the next couple of months, I would like for you to take a quick tour of what we grow.  Please assume that all of these tomatoes have great flavor.  Each variety adds a little something different.  Some people look for just sweetness, others look for tartness, others look for balance and others long for that "classic tomato taste", which is now absent in store bought tomatoes.


So here's the run down of what is currently available:


Our cherry tomatoes include:



 Sweetest tomato on earth


Great Balance between Sweet and Tomato Flavor


 Black Cherry

Best cherry tomato ever.  Strong tomato flavor and good balance


Chocolate Pear

Nice Balance of everything


Our Regular Slicers include:


Big Beef

A classic tomato with a classic taste 



Close to a Brandywine flavor, but smaller



Our Heirlooms include:


This Quisenberry variety has won many awards 


Marianna's Peace

Winner of the 2017 Tomatopalooza Contest.  Similar to Brandywine




Rich, complex flavors


Coração de Boi

Known for its sweetness and delicacy



There will be other tomatoes as the season progresses, but this should give you a working knowledge for you to know what to look for when you get to the stand.  


This week at the stand we will have:





Pickler cucumbers

Slicing cucumbers
Green Bell peppers

Red Bell peppers



White Cabbage


Yellow Squash

Swiss Chard





We will have the same hours as previous weeks.

Look forward to seeing you,


Mark M
