Ever since we discovered the tomato farm last year in Ft. Myers, I’ve been fascinated by the process of large scale tomato growing. That’s their only crop. These farmers supply tomatoes around the country during the winter months. We’ve written a couple of articles about the process, and one of our photographs has been used in a textbook on plant pathology from the Univ. of Nebraska.

Yesterday I stopped there and discovered that they were preparing a large field for another crop.  They are plowing deep furrows into the sandy soil.  After that they concoct a tomato friendly soil along the edges, wrapped in black plastic.  The method works, because the tomatoes  are excellent.

The place is so big that you can drive your car onto the fields and pick your own.  I do it Jersey style: walk into the farm stand where they have ready-to-eat beefsteaks.   I choose them a la Lauri, making sure the red goes up to the stem.  Plus  it helps if you give them a light squeeze; a little give is good.  Sometimes you have to let them sit for a few days to get the best taste.
