Last week we harvested tomatoes from our farm and used them for cooking at Stanley's. This was a mini-milestone for us. It was the first time we've ever harvested food from our farm and used it for cooking. All the tomatoes used as toppings on our pizza last weekend came from our farm.
For our first season, we planted 52 different species (mostly heirloom) with colorful names such as Berkeley Tie Die Green, Toad Suck Toad, Ghost Cherry, Cream Sausage, Tasmanian Chocolate and Pink Furry Boar.
Our first tomato harvest has been pretty small scale, with only about a 90 pound yield. We'll work to increase that with time, and ultimately hope for our farm to provide most, if not all, of the food for our kitchen.
