Yesterday, I had an heirloom tomato tasting party! It was quite delicious.

I provided these varieties to taste:

White Queen
Yellow Queen
Black Prince
Persimmon
Ultrasweet
Rose
Dad's Sunset
Cherokee Purple
Big Rainbow

Other folks brought:

Green Zebra
Juliette
A variety whose plant was labeled White Queen but upon fruiting, clearly wasn't. It was probably Orange Jubilee.
Generic but delicious cherry tomatoes

omegabeth made awesome fried green tomatoes.

Favorites seemed to be the Queens and the Cherokee Purple, though I think I heard at least one person raving about each variety over the course of the afternoon.

The tomatoes came from Verrill Farm in Concord, where they had probably 30 varieties of tomatoes, along with lots of other tasty, locally- and organically-grown produce.

Last week, I almost used the word "blogosphere" in a post on my work blog. This is not good.

Today, I used a new conditioner in my hair. I think I like it, but it smells totally different from what I'm used to, so I keep walking around and catching the scent with surprise. I don't know who this woman is who's following me around, but I like how she smells!
