Alma not representative of all Swedes

>

A cool summer, but my heirloom Glaciers have been ripe for weeks. They are a Swedish tomato. I like to imagine someone gathering their tiny seeds and bringing them all the way here to grow in my little garden on 13th Street and to feed my family, who are part Swedish, too. Using Chuck’s grandmother, Alma, as my representative Swede, I always assumed that they were relaxed, uncomplicated, easily- pleased people but after a summer of Bergman films, I’ve changed my mind.
