The Elusive Homegrown Salad

SaladWe did it, first time ever.  Customers at the farmer’s market are always asking for tomatoes in April and October, when lettuce is available.  Tomatoes ripen around here in July and lettuce is a cool season crop.  But we’ve got a few tomato plants in the greenhouse still going, despite extremely cold weather.  To keep them producing, we are hand pollinating the tomato flowers every morning.  Considering how tasteless grocery store tomatoes are, it’s worth the effort.

    SO worth it. I guess before modern agriculture people didn’t get to have the salads we take for granted today.
