let’s talk tomatoes.

and how in Spain they taste like candy and in summer they taste like happiness.

and how they come in all shapes and sizes and have different names even though they’re all the same fruit…kind of like people.

and how they hold their own in capreses just as well as they decorate pizzas and dance with spaghetti.

and how they’re stewed. sautéed. baked. battered. vine-ripened & roasted.

and how they call themselves cherry. plum. beefsteak.

they’re nothing short of heirloom royalty and they’re what summer CSA dreams are made of…

enough with these words.

 See, taste, savor for yourself…Tomatoes tomatoes tomatoes tomatoes tomatoes tomatoestold you so…
