As if they knew the official start of summer began must a mere four days ago, our little tomato plants have decided to kick into a high gear growth spurt that is producing strong vines, and yes, flowers! Encouraged by almost daily rain showers, diligent watering and the warmth of the Brooklyn sun, these little babies will be churning out lovely lunchtime treats
in no time in another month. Damn. Anyway, by that time Natasha will have her baguette recipe down to a crusty science.
Until then I will be dreaming of full-flavored Cherokee Purples, sweet Sweeties, juicy Purple Calabash and the oh-so exotic Ceylon.
