Leaning Shed Farm’s sign at Green City Market

Indigo Rose tomato

From last week’s market to this week’s, tomatoes came in like gangbusters. Does it get any better than this?

Twenty-three varieties of cherry and 35 heirloom tomatoes from Leaning Shed Farm, where owners Dave and Denise Dyrek go crazy in planting all sorts of varieties with names you’ve never heard of.

A new one this year: Indigo Rose. Has anyone tried it? I got so caught up in photographing and talking and buying tomatoes on the other side of the stand that I forgot to pick up this new beauty. It’s on my list for next week.

I cooked all my tomatoes sauces with these great heirlooms and froze them to use during the winter .

How wonderful in the middle of a Chicago winter to have a taste of summer like that. I like to roast certain tomatoes and freeze them. It’s all good!
