Heirloom Tomatoes

My husband nearly passed on tomatoes at our dinner table because they didn't all look like the familiar bright red variety.  I tried to explain that they're heirloom tomatoes from a farm market that features popular varieties, grown organically.  He wasn't sure about the dark purple, brown and even green hues that he saw.

Their vine ripened taste was fresh, sweet and fabulous, of course -- far beyond anything you'd typically find at a grocery store. 

This week on FlourSackMama.com, meet the young people growing these tomatoes.  But first, on Monday, meet the women still learning more about preserving fresh foods after decades of experience.
