Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

Chris Brower, of Uncle John’s Farm Stand, treks out to the Western Slope for fresh produce two or three times a week, and this week, what struck him was a color — purple. ‘I was drawn to the many purple-colored items this week as I traveled out West,’ he said. ‘The tomatoes are a variety of organic heirlooms called Indigo Rose. They are blue/purple when unripe and turn a dark red when ripe, retaining a deep red/purple interior — very unique indeed. The eggplants are also an organic heirloom variety pollinated by our friends the bees. This week, we finally have field-grown tomatoes (hooray for all us ‘real’ tomato lovers!) and Olathe Sweet corn.’
