Upside to MA Drought

The dead lawns, the spoiled fall foliage (in many areas), the general crust on everything … but I’m neutral about no local peaches this year (that was a result of the weird hot-snap in Feb., anyway), and the clear plus of dryness around here is the most intensely flavored and abundant farm-tomato crop I can remember. All sorts are flourishing and the regular varieties taste exotic like heirlooms. Two months of prime tomato salads ahead …

Hell, yesterday was the Annual Tomato Contest.

P.S.: Carrots (esp. the lovely non-yellow types) and green onion extra-potent, too.
