    Barrett and his family visited us this past weekend, and he was good enough to assemble the above caprese salad for us (it was delicious). The orange and green tomatoes you see above are from the Oak Park farmers market, while the red one is one of the last from our garden this year.

    Because we were away so much this summer, the tomato harvest was considerably smaller than it had been the previous couple years. Also, I think because we chose our tomato varieties poorly, they weren't nearly as tasty either. The heirlooms above, by contrast, were some of the best I remember ever eating. My goal at the farmers market next week will be to try a few more heirlooms, get their names, and possibly even keep some of their seeds for next year's garden. If anybody has any advice on how best to accomplish this last item, please share!

      Oh yeah. I'm so down with this. I'm not sure there's anything better that tomatoes in season. Maybe peaches. Maybe.

      love the absence of a knife in this photo.
      it's not quite still-life.
