Anyone who denies the difference between homegrown and store-bought has never tried a garden-fresh tomato. It's not just the astonishing variety of beautiful open-pollinated varieties (though who isn't spellbound by all those ombre tones and fun shapes?). A tomato that's ripened in your own backyard is another animal entirely—it's the flavor of summer itself! Once you taste your first sun-warmed fresh fruit, there is no way back. The delicious experience will haunt your dinner fantasies forever and no sorry supermarket substitute will suffice.
