A Tomato with Attitude!

Most of the tomatoes sold in stores are actually picked green and then transported hundreds or thousands of miles to sit in storage, eventually winding up in a store where they may fool you into believing you want to eat it.  

Here at T-Farm, we pick tomatoes ripe so that local markets can enjoy the real taste of a good tomato.  Occasionally when harvesting red, ripe tomatoes in a compact space (like a greenhouse full of tomatoes for example) a green tomato falls off the vine.  This happened to me recently while harvesting tomatoes in one of the greenhouses, and I noticed that the green tomato had an actual nose or claw (depending on your interpretation) and so much attitude that I decided to take a photo in a new bowl from this years Madison Art Fair on the Square to highlight it.
