early girl tomatoes are here!

This year's dry-farmed early girl tomatoes are very very good, you should try to get some before the season's over. I think it's something tierra dry-farmed early girl tomatoes, I can't remember, but Monterey, Berkeley Bowl, Berkeley Naturals, and El Cerrito Naturals all carry them. The price is about $2.59 or $2.39. Monterey puts theirs on sale this weekend at $1.89.

Also, the front asian stand at El Cerrito's farmers' market has their jelly-belly grape tomatoes (it's the first asian farmer stand you see when you enter the area, not the asian stand all the way in the back next to Peach Farm). These are sweet, crunchy and bursting with flavor, you should get some before their short season is over.
