I'll be talking about some of my favorite uncommon common vegetables at the 6th annual Heritage Harvest Festival at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, next weekend. I'm really looking forward to the event. I plan to eat my way through it. I love fall festivals. They're like the big payoff for all our hard work in the vegetable garden.
Many of you know I'm something of an heirloom vegetable freak. I love trying the thousands of varieties and treating my garden as a snack bar. I'm open to suggestions, so if you have some favorite varieties to share, pass them along. And if you're in the Virginia area next weekend, stop by and say hi. I'll be the one munching on tomatoes.
