Blah, Blah, Blah

We're finally getting enough tomatoes to eat and for Salsa, this is the first week we will have some Black Plum and Juliet to sell. We had a huge Cherokee Green today and I have to say I like it better than the Cherokee Purples, a nicer acid balance and firmer fleshed. Thanks to Mike Brabo who donated the seed. We also picked some Black from Tula that had cracked and Sweet Carneros as well as a couple of Mortgage Lifters. The best time of year is when you have enough tomatoes to eat.
We may have some tomatillos this week and cucumbers are coming hot and heavy...but we are almost out of Pickles again.

Cortney and I will see you Saturday,

God's Blessings on you and yours


Sam and Bill
