Yes . . . We Have Some Tomatoes! May 17, 2016Posted by nrhatch in Exercise & Fitness, Food & Drink, Home & Garden.
Yes . . . we have some tomatoes. We have some tomatoes today!
Each year, in May, Hunsader Farms invites folks to come out and pick their own tomatoes before the fields close for the summer.
The cost for hand-picked juicy red ripe tomatoes that deliver REAL tomato flavor?
$2 for a 5-gallon bucket!
This year, I hand-picked two buckets (approximately 125 tomatoes) in about 40 minutes.
I picked the second bucket because the weather was gorgeous, I was enjoying the exercise, and I wanted to have enough tomatoes to share with others.
On Saturday, I got more exercise by hand-delivering tomatoes on my “produce mobile” (a/k/a bike) to neighbors who can’t get out and pick their own because they are less mobile than me.
I also bought a box of 25 butternut squash for $5!
Plus 6 ears of corn. Plus an enormous cantaloupe.
How do you spell summertime? ~> D~E~L~I~C~I~O~U~S!
Aah . . . that’s better!
