At an inconspicuous farmer's market in the smallest of towns on the humblest of Main Streets in the USA, a royal family fortuitously introduced me to heirloom tomatoes. The chance introduction and $8 worth of plants launched a passion for the most delicious, colorful, oddly-shaped tomatoes, an obsession with fresh-picked foods and brand new friendships. I curtsy to these royals. They are king! Support your local growers. Buy farm-fresh foods.
