Sunday was tomato picking time at Brookwood Community Farm…a new community
farm I co-founded last year. When we planted the 3600 seedlings of about 20 tomato different varieties in the cold, damp spring it was impossible to imagine the amazing abundance that they would eventually produce. In three hours, 12 volunteers and I picked 575 lbs. of tomatoes – so many they filled the floor of the shed where we have our farm stand! Gotta love homegrown tomatoes!
