    Weekend Gardener


    My neighboring vendor at the Belknap Farmers’ Market, Janet Haggerty, shared some little cherry tomatoes with me last week that came from a stray seedling: the little tomatoes where a dull yellow and about the size of a gooseberry.  They were fantastic!

    I remember meeting a woman at the state fair years ago that brought in a similar bag of tiny tomatoes.
