It's December and we have tomatoes ripening on the vine in our unheated hoophouse. Homer's plan is to keep these plants alive all winter and really have a jump on the 2012 crop. I'm concerned about the 2-3 nights a year when the temperature drops to low single digits..it is hard to imagine the plants lasting through that. For now we are each formulating a plan to convince the other why this tomato should not be shared..
I am the lucky woman who gets to be the farmer's wife to Homer Walden, the hardworking, creative and innovative force behind Sunnyside Farm. The farm is a pasture based intensive grazed farm in Dover, PA. We grow heirloom, open pollinated vegetables, chicken, eggs from heritage breed chickens, beef, heirloom breed turkeys for Thanksgiving and pork with no commercial feed, honey, eggs, Buff ducks. And the occasional flower or 2.
