The sun is shining and the greenhouse doors are open. Even though there aren’t actual fruits in there yet, the tomato plants sure do smell like summer.
I LOVE tomatoes. I love growing them and eating them and finding new varieties to try. But every year, Edge and I always come back to our favorites.
His: Green Zebra. Mine: Rose de Berne (both pictured above)
Green Zebra, along with its bright green streaks and yellow skin, is zingy and tart and the perfect tomato to top a BLT. Rose de Berne is meaty and sweet, with just the right balance of acidity—perfect for caprese salad!
Are you hungry yet?
If you’re a gardener, you can get both of these varieties at our Plant Sale on Memorial Day Weekend. 10% of our profits will go to the Doty Memorial School lunch program.
If you’re an eater, you can get them in your CSA share!
The CSA sign-up deadline is May 1st.
Thanks to everyone who signed up for a share in March! Because of you, we’re donating an extra $90 to subsidized CSA shares.
Do you qualify for a subsidized share? Find out on the NOFA-VT website(and sign up for a subsidized share through the Farm Share Program).
We hope today’s sunshine brought some brightness to your day. And remember: May 1st is coming fast, so renew your Good Heart Membershiptoday 🙂
In Good Heart,
Kate and Edge
