Heirloom Tomato Heaven
I just took a bite of this tomato grown by Pam Gordon (a local farming legend who just turned 80) and got so excited I had to stop and take a picture to share it with you.  Michael was lucky enough to snag one of the two tomatoes Pam brought to Market this week.  I alternated between bites by itself, bites with basil grown by our friend Elaine, and bites with bitter greens given to us by my new friend Janice.  The verdict?  This amazing tomato needed nothing to bring out its sweet and truly delicious flavour.  

The cost of this heirloom tomato?  $2.  
The cost of the taste?  Priceless.

I love living on Hornby Island.
