Tomato ~ Tomahto : Summer is Coming!

fullsizeoutput_57ad

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
