I just had to post today, had to show you this bootylicious mouthwatering treat from the yard. I think it’s called Black Krim. Definitely an Heirloom.

I'm not even sure this made it to a salad....the fact I would forget leads me to believe there was some chaotic feeding frenzy.

Well, I’m just gonna ask the tomato guy from the Farmers market. I believe I bought it from him in March. He grows the best heirlooms, the absolutely sweetest you’ve ever tasted. (All of this comes at a price, of course…there are only two pieces coming from the one plant.)

Now that the Heirloom and Romas are picked I’m weeding the beds and trying to plan the next cycle of who knows what.Heirloom

Instead of poke around the web reading from master gardener to master gardener, I just decided it would make sense to see how a real sfc farm does it. So to that end I’ve signed up to work a Tuesday morning at Johnsons Backyard Garden …it’s a really cool program called work share…and maybe in the ways of sfc this is standard, but this is the first time I’m hearing that I can work for a beautiful box of organic produce…plus suck up some vitamin c while I’m pickin.
