Wednesday is Farmer's Market day in Arlington. I've been going every week since it opened. I love it. I wish there was a big stand with organic produce with a wide selection. Last year there were two small organic stands with a limited selection. I took to buying mostly from Kimbell's Farm which has a very good selection and is an IPM farm.
One of my favorite things to buy from Kimball's Farm is early tomatoes. They sell a large selection of heirlooms later in the season too. Their earliest tomatoes this year were a mix of mostly cherries, but I did see some Orange Blossom tomatoes in there (I'm guessing that is the one, since it it a very early tomato that grows well here). Last week they had Black Prince tomatoes, which is the first of the labeled varieties that were out. So I got some.
Lord they are so good. They are a small black tomato maybe two and a half to three ounces each. They are quite beautiful and their taste is just out of this world. Or at least it seems that way to my tomato starved taste buds. Yum. I looked them up on the web and they are from Irkutsk, so good for my climate. I'm saving seeds for next year. You have to love tomatoes where you can try them out and save the seed all at the same time.
