Goodbye Maine tomatoes, hello Mass field tomatoes

The Massachusetts tomato season is a short one. So from September to June, we rely on an amazing group of people up at Backyard Farms in Maine, who grow tomatoes under a giant glass box, in a greenhouse whose heat is powered by melting snow.

But from July to September, we get to taste field tomatoes right from our own state. Chris got the word from our farmers that Massachusetts field tomatoes are about to be ready.

Get ready for Tomato sandwiches, fried green tomatoes, tomato salads, and gazpacho!
