I went to the farmers’ market Wednesday and bought many Heirloom tomatoes from these folks. Also some kickin’ Ugly Tomato Salsa that even Charlie likes, although he doesn’t usually like spicy things.
If you want some delicious tomatoes and/or some kickin’ salsa, go to the Harrison County Farmers’ Market on Wednesday and hope Evan and Hannah are there. You’ll know them by the wide variety of ugly tomatoes they have on display, and also by Hannah’s award-winning tattoo. It’s one of the prettiest I’ve ever seen.
I’m at Fatal Foodies today, with a sad update on the state of our CSA.

Nice flower tat!
An article in today’s paper says that some items in the garden will become tastier because of the drought. The heat concentrates flavors, like grapes in wine country when the summer’s warm and dry. So: peppers will be hotter. Ditto, radishes. Uh…..cucumbers? Oh, yes, melons, cantaloupes, etc., are said to originate in Africa and other hot, dry climes, so they should thrive. Are you believing any of this???
