“Burn down your cities and leave our farms, and your cities will spring up again as if by magic; but destroy our farms and the grass will grow in the streets of every city in the country.” William Jennings Bryan

Famine to feast…

Last season was a terrible year for tomatoes with all the rain, hornworms, and the diseases early blight and late blight that shortened an already unproductive season. This year is totally different with the stingy rain patterns, plenty of dry, warm days, and very little blight (there are reports of it occurring now in parts of Pennsylvania).

Our tomatoes plants – varieties of Roma, cherry, grape, Rutgers, yellow, and Brandywine- have been producing surplus quantities this season. I’ve never seen tomatoes grow like this!

Last Wednesday evening's harvest...

And an afternoon treat!
