Heirloom Tomatoes

Our great great great great great great grandmothers planted these seeds a long time ago. Before, when the earth was still forming, when humans were barely human and trees ruled the world. Back then, heirloom tomatoes were just tomatoes. And they grew freely in abundance, unhindered by cement or asphalt or artificial barriers to their vine-y proliferation. Nothing tried to domesticate them, blend them, make them obey the rules of society. They blossomed on their own schedule, and were eaten by animals sniffing the fragrance that so signified its ripe state. And what’s amazing is that’s how they exist today.
