You Say Tomato, I Say Tomatoooooo

It is almost that time of year and we are again getting ready for the summer tomato. Why is it, that this is a flavor that no hot house or distant field in another state or country can reproduce?
We have our fresh mozzarella ordered for caprese salad, and we are looking forward to creating other tasty tomato dishes like bruschetta, BLT's and a wonderful heirloom tomato salad that we served last year.  We only use the best quality extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and fresh basil. Adding the fresh mozzarella that we pull in house makes my mouth water as I am writing this.  The only thing missing are the tomatoes.
Last year we had an organic farmer from Sandwich, IL that supplied us with the nicest selection of heirloom tomatoes for about 6 weeks. We hope to have access to that same source this year too. Also, once the tomatoes start to pop and you have too many, we would love take them off your hands. We would be happy to pay what ever we would pay from our regular supplier and we can even do a little better on pricing for heirlooms.
It just makes sense to keep it local. From your farm to our table. Plus, we promise to never throw them in the fridge.  Send us an email or call, and we can make arrangements.
How are your tomatoes looking? We would love to hear. Please blog with us.

  1. Heirlooms are behind this year, early hybrids are happening and cherries and grapes, heirlooms are developing color and I would start expecting them next week
