And why is it that when everything seems calm and compliant, here comes a powerful surge that will leave you bewildered and defenseless?

tomatoes being washed by a gush of water


…here comes the woter!

tomatoes being unloaded from the truck


…and more!

I had the chance to visit tomato land in Sarrat, Ilocos Norte last week. We were toured around the processing plant and I was specifically in awe after seeing a truckload of tomatoes being unloaded into a water canal leading into a huge pool of tomatoes. I never seen a pool so huge and err, so red. Will post a series on this next time.

In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the Lenten Season!

Amazing, you could make megagallons of spaghetti saus using those.
I never realized the far east was such a tomato place, but then why not?
