I love August in Indiana because we have the most
delicious tomatoes that have ripened and ready to eat.
About 63 years ago, my Dad and Mom purchased a
small little grocery store in the town of Teegarden,
Indiana. When they purchased the store the previous
owner had a stock of garden seeds. In one of the seed
packets there was a package of tomato seeds called
Super Market Tomatoes. My Mom sewed the seeds in
the late winter (still her favorite thing to do) and
by that August they were harvesting the most delicious
tomatoes. She has saved these seeds every year since
then and as you can tell, they are very large and the sweetest
Yesterday I spent the day canning tomatoes, so I didn't
get a card made. This winter I will be very glad!
One tip: Sprinkle your tomatoes with salt, pepper and some
balsamic vinegar. The vinegar really brings out the flavor.
