Heirloom Tomatoes Here I Come Again!

March 4, 2010Katie

I did it.

Today I ordered my heirloom seeds.  I’m late but it’ll be okay.  Last year I ordered so many varieties.  This year I’ve narrowed it down to my favorites.  Here’s my selection.

From the Black/Purple group is my favorite of all time – Black Krim.  Sweet and tasty and ohhh so wonderful.

The beloved Brandywine is my choice in Reds.   Excellent flavor…great for sandwiches or salads. Large fruits!

Also from the Reds, I ordered Mule Team, as Ms. Martha Stewart highly recommended them.

From the Whites/Greens I ordered Aunt Ruby’s German Green.  The description got me – “A sweet delicious flavor with a hint of spice” . 

These are new to me – can’t wait to see how they fare.

And we got such a huge yield and enjoyed these so much last year, I ordered some more of the Fox Cherries.

I cannot wait to slow-roast these little babies again this year like I did last year.  Fabulous!

A few memories that are making me anxious to have my garden overflowing once again.

And the joys of having a bowl full of fresh tomatoes at my beck and call every day.

If you’re inspired to grown Heirloom Tomatoes, I recommend Tomato Bob to order from.  You can find his site here.

But I’m just warning you, if you start down this path…you’ll never come back to hybrids again…

    Katie, I know I cannot wait to taste a good garden ripe tomato!!! Just pass the salt shaker. LOL We use Baker Creek (they are in Missouri) and have for several years. They have one of the largest selections of seeds I have ever seen. But I like them because they are a little "politically incorrect." And they are nice people. I'll check out Tomato Bob's. I love looking through seed catalogs!

    Wow! Can't wait to see how they do. We're going with Beef, Yellow Jubilee, Roma, and Cherry Tomatoes. We planted 15, but you never know just how many will survive from seedlings (it's my first time :)
