That's One Big Tomato!

We sell fresh organic produce at my mother's health food store, and tomorrow we're going to be receiving crates of these beautiful wonders! I'm not sure if they're heirloom variety tomatoes, but I do know that they're grown locally and from a wonderful gentleman named Gary Childres. He has provided us with some fantastic asparagus, and unforgettably sweet strawberries this year so far. Go Gary!

I like the shot of the tomato with the shadow, like an argument and its contradiction.

Goodness me! That tomato in HUGE! I wonder what Gary's secret is? I bet he has a secret feeding recipie to get such a fine-looking tomoto; mine are still either still in flower or very small and green . We must be way behing you guys! (Too cold here)

I went to The Sunpot last night and there were only two tiny tomatoes left! People just love Gary's tomatoes. Cool picture too!
