Had a good harvest day yesterday. We picked our first tomatoes yesterday–three Crimson Sprinters. The Cosmonaut Volkovs should be ready later this week. Before we know it we will have more tomatoes than we can handle. If only I could get them to be ripe earlier.
We also ate corn last night for dinner. We got it from the farm in Richmond, Conant’s Riverside Farm, where we used to get it a lot, until we moved to Hinesburg. This is our first time eating corn from there this summer, since my daughter and I were passing by there yesterday afternoon. That corn is quality stuff. One of these days I will try again to grow sweet corn. Popcorn is growing well in our garden but it won’t be ready for a while.
We need to keep on it or things will get overripe. Another warm and sunny day today–we won’t have to worry about what’s for dinner, just how to prepare it. With the leftover corn from last night, and all the tomatoes on the way, a corn tomato chowder may be on deck for tonight. Plus maybe coffee ice cream. Who would say not to that?
