Sweet Corn

It is summer and I thought I would give you a taste of New England, starting with Sweet Corn. This is funny...

Fresh garden tomatoes are one of the great things about summer. We planted some heirloom seeds sent by a friend in Santa Barbara called Purple Cherokee and Golden Globe cherry tomatoes, for which I built a 10 foot scaffold. 

  As soon as they started coming in, we realized that the dog likes tomatoes which is why we weren’t getting any. We put in a fence, which did not stop the phantom, so we resorted to electricity, in his collar and voila. 

 We have so many we are making caprese, and every other tomato dish we can think of, making sauce & freezing it.

 We have been harvesting our way up the scaffold and soon we will be picking tomatoes from over our heads.

We hope you are all having a wonderful last few weeks of summer.
