It’s a true story: the best tomatoes I ever ate were grown by Mr. Portwood in his home garden. I share how I got to know Mr. Portwood and his unusual tomato business model in a story featured in Salvation South.
Salvation South is a new publication edited and published by Chuck Reece, one of the creators of The Bitter Southerner. Since 2013, I can count on BS to deliver thoughtful, challenging and insightful commentary on the Southern experience.
I have the same expectation for Salvation South, with a side of inspiration to take off the bitter edge. I hope you like my story about Mr. Portwood’s tomatoes. And while you’re visiting Salvation South, sign up for their weekly emails and check out their merch. After all, who doesn’t love an inscribed tea towel?
Shout-out to Stacy Reece for stellar design on the Salvation South story! The juicy tomato artwork reminds me of heirloom seed packets ~ tempting, authentic and absolutely perfect for this tomato story.
