Tomat-oh!


One of my favorite things about late summer is the tomato harvest. All of a sudden, come mid-August, the Farmer's Markets are brimming with robust, juicy, flavorful tomatoes. These aren't your February grocery store tomatoes imported from Chile. No, these are heirloom, picked this morning, don't-bother-slicing-just-take-a-bite-right-out-of-them tomatoes! Thank goodness, Allandale Farm in Brookline shares this passion, and every year, they spotlight their love for tomatoes at their annual tomato festival. For a few dollars, you can enjoy at least fifty different kinds of heirloom tomatoes on their tomato tasting table, as well as sweet grilled corn, iced tea, peach cobbler, and the musical stylings of a bluegrass band. As for my outfit - it was so humid I decided to wear the most breathable, soft, breezy item I could find in my closet, along with a big hat to keep the sun out of my face. Maybe not my most chic look, but it was appropriate for the day!
