He has been cared for by his grandmother and aunt his entire life.

  • When Dr. John Cole, a neurosurgeon, was featured in a column last year, and it was the first time I had ever heard of heirloom tomatoes. At the time, he was traveling to Louisville to Fresh Market to buy that type of tomatoes, which come in a variety of colors.

    An heirloom tomato is a variety that has been passed from gardener to gardener. Heirlooms come from seeds and are easy to share.

    Heirloom varieties’ greatest quality is their old-time flavor and there’s a wide vareity of tastes.

  • With gardens continuing to come in, fresh vegetables are ready for the eating. Squash, zucchini, corn and tomatoes fresh off the vine are just a few of the delicacies hitting dinner tables fresh from the garden.

    There’s nothing better than using fresh tomatoes on a BLT sandwich served with butter-coated corn on the cob from the garden. It’s like your mouth waters for it while patiently waiting for the tomatoes to grow.
