Despite the recent trade network malfunction involving the Kale Fairy's newfound vegetarianism, the powers that be must still be smiling on my endeavor, because today I finagled the greatest trade ever!

Veggie Man traded me 3 and half dozen eggs and a half pound of goat cheese for..... ALL THE TOMATOES I CAN PICK! Yes folks, that's right, I get to go out to their farm and start picking. They have cherry tomatoes, beefsteak tomatoes, roma tomatoes... they have three thousand tomato plants dropping tomatoes all over the ground and they don't care how many tomatoes I pick. I'm going to bring my sister and we are going to bring our kids and we will have all their little hands picking tomatoes just as quick as we can make them pick.
Then we are going to can sauce.
Now you might think I got the better end of the deal here, but you don't know just how freaky delicious my latest cheese is. I call it "two pepper thyme" because it has red pepper, black pepper, and dried thyme in it, and I'm making more of it just as fast as I can.
In fact, I think I'd better go stir it up right now or my curd will matt. Nothing yuckier than matted curd.
