Gabe and Abigail sample a red round field tomato to see if they're ready for harvest.
I am having a wonderful time cutting the flowers at the farm - they are so beautiful. But...they wilt so fast that by the time you get home, they already look sad - they do perk back up, but I am sure the stress takes a couple days off of their vase life. I have large mason jars, so I put some water in the jar and right after I cut the flowers, they go into the jar. I nestle the jar in the front seat of my car and when I get home they are as fresh as when I cut them. Besides keeping the flowers fresh, it gives me extra time to re-cut and arrange the flowers so I don't need to do it as soon as I get home. The other option is a wet towel or paper towels, a plastic bag and a rubber band.
