One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2016—Organic HAIRloom Tomatoes

You never know what you’ll find on a visit to the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero in San Francisco.  Ferry schedules are still posted there but the main corridor of the building has restaurants, souvenir shops, food vendors, and one stand called “Farm Fresh to You” featuring Organic HAIRloom Tomatoes.  That made me laugh so I had to share it on my blog.  The auto spell check kept changing it to “heirloom” so I fought until it kept my original spelling.  This might be something to add to Lynne Truss’s work, Eats Shoots And Leaves, perhaps in the section where she discusses, quite passionately, the Green Grocer’s Apostrophe, what with these hairloom tomatoes being offered by a greengrocer and all. The only thing better would have been if they had spelled tomatoes “tomato’s.”

And, in case you’re wondering what the Ferry Building looks like now, here’s a shot with the “hairloom” tomatoes in the lower left corner.
