A few years ago, my sister was making wine at Stags Leap wine Cellars, and I went to visit her and her boyfriend, Vincent Natress, who at the time was the Chef at Robert Sinskey Winery. He took us to a Farmers market in Napa, and it was like going to a sneaker store with Michael Jordan. One particular farmer spent an hour with us, graciously letting us sample every tomato variety he grew. The flavors, colors and aromas were something I won't forget soon. Whyt aren't all tomatos like this? I asked, It seems that Joe consumer likes his /her tomatos all the same shape and color, and Heirloom varieties often come out looking like they were grown on Three Mile Island. I bought a bunch of seeds from him, and took them to my Mum in Tasmania, where she has been growing them ever since. I put in some regular old romas a couple of weeks ago, but I'm going to do a little online sluething to see what interesting seeds I can dig up. As my Mum always says " Life begins the day you start a garden".
