Description
 
One evening, 14 years ago, Tim Stark chanced upon a dumpster full of discarded lumber. He carried the lumber home and built a germination rack for thousands of heirloom tomato seedlings. His crop soon outgrew the brownstone in which it had sprouted, forcing him to cart the seedlings to his family’s farm, where they were transplanted into the ground by hand. When favorable weather brought a bumper crop, Tim hauled his unusual tomatoes to N.Y. City’s Union Square Greenmarket at a time when the tomato was unanimously red. The rest is history. Today, Eckerton Hill Farm does a booming trade in heirloom tomatoes and obscure chile peppers. “An inspiring memoir about rediscovering an older and still vital way of life.”
