I make it a point to only eat tomatoes when they’re in season. After spending the summer months eating sweet and juicy tomatoes from the local farmers market and my own garden, there’s just no going back to those dull and flavorless ones at the grocery store. So how was I able to make my favorite tomato sandwich for lunch yesterday? It’s all thanks to a local farmer’s greenhouse.

Market Watch: Home-Grown Lemons by Dana Angelo White in Eating Green, Farmers' Market Finds, In Season, May 17, 2010
I usually write about my favorite finds from the farmers’ market or my CSA box, but I also grow some of my own food. After a few years of TLC, my lemons trees have produced their first harvest. I couldn’t wait to dig in!
I didn’t want to waste one bit of these plump and juicy Eureka lemons, so I found a use for everything from the juice to the peel.
