Harvest: Tomatoes, Beans, Peppers
We have enough plants working on the farm to do small harvests like this two or three times a week. There are two types of tomatoes that we picked this morning. The smaller darker ones are heirloom Black Plum tomatoes. The second type is a hybrid tomato suspiciously named Health Kick. This tomato is engineered to have 50% more of the anti-oxidant lycopene than the typical tomato. There is an in-depth review of Health Kick tomatoes grown in Cleveland, Ohio here.
