The Year of the Tomato

This week we harvested enough tomatoes, cucumbers, jalapeños, and herbs to participate in our first farmers’ market! We’ll be selling our produce at the Cherokee Street International Farmers’ Market on Fridays from 4-7 PM all summer!

The tomato plants at our Iowa Street garden survived the massive heat wave we experienced- over a week of temperatures soaring well above 100ºF. Watering was a tricky balancing act but I think we were successful- the plants are positively exploding with tomatoes. Seriously, we’ve never seen such prolific tomato production!

The tomato plants at our Sunset Hills garden are thriving, too. No ripe tomatoes here yet (besides some yellow cherries), since we got a later start than we would’ve liked.
