Mini-meltdown precedes happy ending

I attended this wedding. The bride and groom wanted a brown cake to go with brown elements in their color scheme, and they thought white buttercream was too sweet. It's a mocha frosting, and it went so fast that I didn't get any.

A guide to tomatoes: Picking the right type for your needs

Our favorites from our garden last year were the sunsugars. They are delicious! We kept a bowl of them on the table to snack on. We also grew yellow pear, which didn't taste as good (not sweet). And, oh my, I don't think indeterminate begins to describe the yellow pear — it wanted to grow EVERYWHERE. This year, we're doing sunsugar, jet star, a cherry tomato type and a yellow tomato type, which I don't know the names of off the top of my head.
