These are all heirloom tomatoes.
We weren't even sure that we were going to have a garden this year because of the Crump barn project. It takes up so much of mom and dad's time but dad insisted on planting a dozen or so plants. Unfortunately, we didn't buy seeds and we planted plants that our friend Lauren gave us and our friend Suzanne gave us and we sorta don't know what variety they are.
One year we grew heart tomatoes but this isn't a heart tomato, although it does look like one!
These "heart" tomatoes have mottling on them and dad says they are very sweet.
Mom calls this one a smokey tomato and dad insists that this one is a Cherokee Purple!
Not sure what this huge yellowish one is either but we like its pretty color!
The ones in this basket are Fourth of July tomatoes. We will always grow 4th's! They are always the first ones to turn red in the garden and the last ones to go once the frost hits! These plants keep on going - like the energizer bunny - they just never quit!
I'm thinking that we'll be eating salads every night for the rest of the summer! yummmmmmmmmmm
