  • Stray seeds, odd fruit, a breed unto itself

    My neighboring vendor at the Belknap Farmers’ Market, Janet Haggerty, shared some little cherry tomatoes with me last week that came from a stray seedling. The little tomatoes where a dull yellow and about the size of a gooseberry.  They were fantastic.
