Let there be tomatoes

South Boston NewsSouth Boston News
The South Boston Farmers Market opened with fanfare Saturday, including a bluegrass band and drawings for prizes. Manager Ray Satterfield said vendor sign-ups are strong, and he picked up two new vendors that morning. Buyers snatched up the limited number of early, red, homegrown tomatoes “like buzzards,” said one farmer, who had planted his in March and carefully protected the plants by covering them on cold nights. Others were content with green tomatoes, either for frying or for putting in a windowsill to ripen. Above, Jackie Tillery prettifies some onions.
