Plucked from the garden just this morning - 3½ pounds of heirloom tomatoes and a few other goodies. Beginning from right of the lens cap: 1 pink brandywine, a bunch of french marmandes off to the side, hot peppers, a couple of black krims at the bottom, 1 round pugliese cucumber just under the lens cap, and the zukes. At this stage in summer, I'll take whatever vegetables (toms especially) that come my way, blemishes and all. After having read how unlucky of a year - brutto cattivo! - that it has been for quite a few tomato growers, my only plan is that in 2010, I will simply have to plant more, more, more! Just about everything here (save for the zucchini and lens cap) went into a cold heirloom tomato soup with sweet-spicy pepitas.
