Monday Dose of Market: Toothache Plant and Tomato Reprieve

(post, Cristin Couzens)

It’s snowing in Denver. Again.  This is not helping my portrayal of this city to friends afar as a place where it does snow, but always warms up and melts soon after.  It is helping me stay inside and get our new house organized.   And I’m finally cooking meals in the kitchen.  Last night I had a Colorado-raised, grass-fed beef burger.  With a juicy, red, ripe, perfect, pesticide-free and locally grown tomato from Honeyacre Farm.  Thank you Honeyacre. 

I thought I’d had my last local tomato after the Cornucopia of Local Market.  But this is it.  Really.  Honeyacre is pulling up their tomatoes in preparation to replant.  Their new crop will be ready for Whole Foods in April, and back at market in May.  Sigh.
