We made a little trip out to the We Love DC Dirt Lab this weekend to check on the large garden plot. It took three people to carry the harvest back into the house. What you see there is a pile of chili peppers, 6 heirloom tomatoes, two enormous zucchini, three enormous squash, and not even a tenth of the basil patch. That’s not the first squash we’ve gotten out of it, either.
We cut up one of the tomatoes right away and as we devoured it, we asked ourselves why people continue to subject themselves to gross supermarket tomatoes, especially in winter. If you buy nothing else from your local farmers market, buy your tomatoes there in season. I promise you will not regret it.
