This Weekend in Rhode Island

Tomorrow is TOMATO SATURDAY at the Coastal Growers Market, Casey Farm, 2325 Boston Neck Road (rte 1A), Sauderstown. It's open from 9:00 a.m. until noon. 2010 has been/is once of the best years ever for tomatoes (and just about every other kind of produce) and at the Coastal Growers Market you can sample dozens of heirlooms. Go wild. Can't you just hear Guy Clark singing Homegrown Tomatoes?
