Santa Rosa Heritage Festival
Meekk and Bryan visited the recent Heritage Festival. Lots of folks interested in tomatoes that TASTE like tomatoes! Many of our foods became over-processed and bland to support massive trucking cross-country. Tomatoes were one of the victims, where heirloom or heritage tomatoes were tossed aside starting in the 1940s, in favor of those more hardy (but hardly tasty). Today, there is a lot of backlash as we realize the costs of industrialized 'cheap' food production.
2014 was a great tomato season, with long spring days and warm summer. Meekk loves tomatoes, and it shows!
