We’re nearly in the home stretch of summer. Just one more month and autumn will be upon us. In the meantime, while many of us bemoan the persistent heat, let’s not overlook the last of the magical abundance of the season, as we also welcome the very first signs of fall.
August is the perfect month for tomatoes at area farmers tailgate markets! Heirloom tomatoes are the royal family of the bunch – prized for their intense flavors, vibrant colors, and non-spherical shapes. You can eat them sliced with a pinch of salt, cooked in your favorite dishes, or as an all-American favorite: The Tomato Sandwich.
