Time to Order Organic Roma Sauce Tomatoes!

Without further ado, you can now email me your orders for our bulk Roma's! They have been super, super slow this year...cold nights, cool days have stopped the ripening process in it's tracks.  Now they seem to be perking up again. They're are lots of beautiful tomatoes out there and I have a feeling when they are ready - they'll be ready. So for ours there will be a short window off time for the bulk. Probably two-three weeks at the most. We have a late patch but you never know what weather may bring in the form of blight..

We sell 1/2 bushel cases (25lbs each) for $30. Email me your name, phone number, how many cases you need, and the market you wish to pick up at, and the date you would like them to: jb@sosnickiorganics.com (Dufferin on Thursday; Junction-Wychwood-Brickworks on Saturday mornings). 

We won't be shipping much bulk for this weekend, but get your orders in for the following week: Aug 29 and 31st and into September. First come, first served. 

There are certified organic Roma paste sauce type tomatoes we've grown for years now. Very high quality, meaty and wonderful flavour. Picked vine ripe typically the day before we bring them to market. So far the patch shows little to no disease (blight), so they are perfect for sauce this year. Please keep your emails brief, as I usually get bombarded and may not be able to answer everyone back. That's why I create the blog :)

I don't know how long into September the crop will last so plan to do your sauce sooner than later if you wish to use our tomatoes. Maybe we'll get lucky and we'll be able to offer until October. Who knows. But I know some avid sauce makers have been waiting :) Email away to get onto Jessie's 'master tomato list'!!
