I've been anxiously waiting for the heirloom tomatoes to turn color so that I can taste these beauties. My plan this year was to grow as many varieties that I could so that I could zone in on the varieties that I thought tasted the best and therefore would make a return appearance in the garden. I plan to save the seeds for the heirloom varieties that I think are the tastiest. Here is Chocolate Cherry, they are turning into a cool brown color. They should be ripe soon, and I can't wait to try these. I originally received these seeds from Wintersown.org. It's a great place to get tomato seeds.
Snarky Vegan. This plant actually got a disease so this is the only tomato on the plant. That makes me super sad. I planted a few Persimmon tomato plants, it's now a waiting game to see if the other plants get diseased. I hope not. This tomato is finally showing a blush of color. It sure is a pretty brilliant orange color and really does look like a Persimmon. I see now how it got the name. I put bird netting around all of my tomato plants because last year we were plagued by squirrels stealing the tomatoes before we got a chance to eat them. This year I proactively tried to prevent the squirrels from taking the maters, even though they stole my peaches and grapes.
Our Engineered Garden. I am amazed by how large these tomatoes are. They will easily be 1 pounders. I can't wait until the tomatoes turn pink. They will be delicious I'm sure.
