$7.50 worth

This has been a very sad tomato season for me, but for the Alabama harvest. Missouri was a bust, with none of the heirloom farmers showing up at the market this year. These tomatoes, approximately $2.50 apiece, were purchased at the farmers' market in NYC. They were quite good, after I had cut out the black parts. I also bought a smallish Cherokee Black or something at Fairway for $3. It was not that great.
I did learn about the Otoriko this year, grown by a friend in Missouri. Pink and quite yummy. And my old winter standby, the greeny brown kumato, continues to remind me of what a tomato ought to taste like.
Something needs to be done.
