The Best Organic, Heirloom Tomato Season…Ever

So far, 2014 has been the most fruitful, pun intended, tomato season I’ve ever had. I started everything from seed and everything came from heirloom seeds come from Tomatofest. Please share in my happy. And, if I’ve jinxed myself, it was worth it. 🙂

I hope everyone’s having a productive, delicious, and healthy season.

  1. Never heard of some of these varieties. You’ll never find any that beautiful and
    vibrant in a store. I’m sure they taste amazing too. I’m so happy for you.

      • I haven’t been very adventurous, but can’t get enough of Cherokee Purples. Thanks for the tip on Tomatofest. I’m definitely checking them out for next year.

      • I’m in zone 5B. Cherokee Purples are, as you’d guess from the name, an old Cherokee heirloom pre 1890. Large fruit. Early ripening. Old fashioned tomato flavor with the added bonus of a pinkish purple color. Is there anything better than a juicy tomato, fresh off the vine, still warm from the sun? Rhetorical question. Of course there isn’t. 🙂

  2. I have never seen someone so happy over tomatoes. They look delicious.Enjoy and keep the green thumb going.

  3. I may be going out on a limb here, but my guess is you like tomatoes? Cute pictures and I’m glad you’re getting some toms. We have our first little green ones starting and I can’t wait to taste them!

    • You think!?!? They’re my absolute favorite. I love growing things that I’ll never get in the store. And, if you can believe this, I’m the only tomato eater in the house! They’re all for me (and friends when I can bear to share😉)
