I can't believe how hard it is to find good tasting tomatoes (or carrots, for that matter) in the North Dallas area where I live now, unless I happen to get to the farm stand very early on market day! The expensive heirlooms at Sprouts and Whole Foods are tasteless this year. I've tried nearly every organic and non-organic brand of all varieties and am disappointed. They are picked too early and shipped too far in most cases. I hope to be able to grow my own next year! Being from Califorina I am very critical, lol. Everything grows magically there :-). But honestly, now, I bite into an organic carrot and it is completely tasteless. I yearn for the days when I could pick one out of the ground, rinse it off and bite into heaven.
