if anyone is still reading this, come see me at the berkeley farmer's market on saturday! i had a little powwow with a bunch of farmers at the market today, and i got terra firma, dirty girl, riverdog, and annabelle to give me stuff for my demo. yay!
and tomorrow, there'll be an article on tomatoes in the oakland tribune (and i think also the san jose mercury news and a marin newspaper) that i will be in; also upcoming stuff in sf mag and diablo mag. i'm everywhere with tomatoes and panzanella. inescapable.

1. dirty girl dry farmed early girls
1. bob's unnamed red tomatoes with thin skins
3. terra firma black prince
4. riverdog sweet 100s
5. riverdog cherokee purple
6. full belly sungolds
7. full belly marvel stripes
8. riverdog black prince
