|Four varieties of tomatoes, apples, and a Japanese cucumber|
My brother and his wife are coming over tomorrow morning, and they are going to take me to an Asian hot pot restaurant for lunch. It's an all-you-can-eat, grill-any-meat and make-your-own-soup place. It's certainly not a place I would go by myself. When I was younger, I used to over eat at this type restaurant and felt totally sick afterward.
My brother and his wife are both busy legal professionals. They live in a nice condo and travel whenever possible. In other words, they don't have a garden. Knowing that we will be eating a lot of grilled meat tomorrow, I wanted to put together an assortment of farm fresh produce for them to take home.
I collect clear plastic containers for the purposes of gifting. I don't want to put tomatoes or figs in a bag. They can get smashed. My tomatoes are picked when they are perfectly ripe and super sweet. Oh, I almost forgot about the Mandarin oranges. They will take some of those home, too.
Anyone who visits the farm shall take something home. That is the Sand Village Farm policy!
