Tomatoes!

So much new to report here, after a long hiatus from the blog.

We have a new name for the farm – Birdsong Orchards!
The orchards part is admittedly aspirational, but the daily birdsong that wakes me every morning has been one of the great joys of moving to the country.

We are now certified organic! That is a whole post unto itself, but thank you CCOF.

And we have tomatoes, OMG do we have tomatoes. Our experiment in planting 87 varieties of heirloom tomatoes succeeded beyond my hopes, and then some. We have harvested around 2000 pounds so far, and they keep coming. I will do a follow-up post on my favorite varieties, but for now, here are some pictures.
