more from the farmers' market

I got there five minutes before the market opened, and waited at the gate with the other market regulars like a hawk ready to descend on its prey.

This week, my favorite vendor had some tomatoes that are really, really tiny -- the smallest ones are only as big as my fingernails. They look like red pearls with emerald adornment, waiting to be strung into a necklace. Absolutely adorable!

Red-and-green is one of my favorite color combinatioins, so just lookig at these tomatoes makes me very happy. But I'm happier still when I pop them into my mouth, two at a time.

A treat to the senses.
