Lovely haul. Do the tomatoes still have good flavor?

They're not mid-summer tomatoes but quite good - juicy and flavorful.  They're from Beylik Family Farms and grown hydroponically but since they are ripened on the vine and harvested locally, they are way better than what I think of as "hot house" tomatoes.

I always pick mine from the "seconds" bin, which are less expensive, but also more ripe.

We have some growers here in Arkansas who are doing high-tunnel greenhouse growing for tomatoes, peppers and lettuces during the winter. They generally only have to heat in January and February. They're growing hydroponically, and the lettuces/greens are indistinguishable from garden grown. The tomatoes, mostly cherry and grape varieties, are quite acceptable.
