I think there would be a lot of agreement when I say that eating our tomatoes in summer is a highlight - an amazing taste experience really. The different varieties are all worth a try and have unique flavours and sweetness variation. Our greenhouse here at Kingfisher has been producing a great crop of tomatoes this season but our greenhouses at A Rocha have suffered this year. Because of that we are struggling to supply enough of these amazing tomatoes to you. I'm interested in getting Certified Organic Roma and field tomatoes from Cawston BC brought in next week. The same people that bring us the high-quality fruit are willing to come down with tomatoes.
That's how it is with farming. Some years we have a bumper crop of beans and we're all canning beans; some years the slugs eat them all. We try to take what comes with steadiness, do the work we can and plan to make improvements for next season. Amidst all the abundance Paul and I continue to remind ourselves that we are finite, the hours in the day are finite, and whatever each day held is ENOUGH. We continue to realign our values, hang out with our family, sit down over drinks with friends, and work hard in the daylight hours. Peace to you in whatever these days hold for you - and much joy in the eating of tomatoes!
