Week of May 10th

The windy weather up here in Buellton finally got the better of me. I got a pretty bad sinus related cold and it took me down yesterday. This is why your post is coming so late. We are so close to having so many tomatoes on the farm I can taste it. Lots of delicious variety on the horizon, but we came up a little short this week. So we are filling the box with fruit and enjoying every bite.
