One of the simple pleasures I enjoyed as a kid was heading out to the garden and gently pulling and twisting off a perfectly ripe tomato, warm from the sunshine. My dad would eat his with a sprinkle of sugar, and the rest of my family debated whether they were best with a dusting of salt or just au natural.
Tomatoes seemed so simple to grow back then. It wasn’t until our FoodE Experts took a trip to Bushel Boy Tomatoes in Owatonna, MN that I learned the science and the care required to keep our stores supplied with “probably the best tomato in Minnesota.”
