The following post is reposted from The Sustainable Food Center, in Austin Texas. Please visit this wonderful site/blog as it is a wealth of information about food: growing it and preparing it!
I adore heirloom tomatoes and get excited when I start to see them in the local farmer's market and at our beloved Central Market store. They are what tomatoes are "supposed" to taste like.
I grew up in the midwest with a garden in my back yard that always had a bountiful supply of tomatoes, among other things, all summer long. I didn't realize that a lot of people didn't grow vegetables and eat fresh things until I got a bit older. How sad!
When I saw the photograph contained in this article I just had to share. A follow-up to this post will be information on how to save the heirloom tomato seeds.
