The variety was endless. It was the most beautiful sight I saw this summer. Seriously, seeing 20 different kinds of tomatoes at one farmers market stand... doesn't this excite anyone else?!
I walked away with at least 8 different kinds of tomatoes, including this amazing heirloom which was a tasty treat! It was so sweet it almost replaced my craving for sugar... almost.
Next up: how to can tomatoes! This is one of those, grab a glass of wine, turn on some music, and find a comfy chair to wait in cooking projects. Patience is a virtue, and by the time I peeled a 1/2 bushel of tomatoes, my hands felt bizarre. But it was worth because now I know that I have 15 cans of tomatoes from local farmers that will get me through the winter!
