Sweet lil tomatoes

At the Martinez Farmers Market today, we were in a different location due to an event on Main Street. It was a "Run for Education" and they raised over $60K for local schools, very impressive! Way to go Martinez, you know how to nurture your peeps! Anyhow, while that was going on, we were on Castro Street and many of us were next to vendors that we aren't usually close to. So a couple tents down, was this vendor that had some gorgeous heirloom tomatoes and some melons as well. What really struck me was, the way they would tenderly pick up each sweet tomato, with such gentle care. I was thinking those tomatoes has to feel the love and so I had to tell the lady from Blondie's Farm that their tender care was showing. She replied that the tomatoes were grown from seed and she watched each one of them pop their little heads up as they were growing. It was just so sweet! That's the cool thing about the farmers market, where else will you have an interaction like that? Aren't they gorgeous?
