Picking Tomatoes

I've been picking tomatoes for a couple of weeks now. They're good but not great. If I go to a good produce store, pick carefully and pay a little extra, I can get just as good. If I go to the weekly farmer's market downtown, I can get way better.

I don't think I'll grow tomatoes again.

Just got back from the Hollywood Farmer's Market in NE Portland with tomatoes and white corn. Oregon tomatoes and corn are pretty good but not as good as New Jersey"s. Going to the QFC market down the street. They have fresh dungeness crab for $5.99 a pound. You can't beat that.

That's why they call it the Garden State.

I like crab OK. I could really do with a bucket of steamed clams and an icy quart of beer, when it cools down some this evening.
