The heirlooms are finally here.
Every year I plant several different heirloom tomato plants. This year they went in the ground early, grew lush and green, set lots of tomatoes, and then everything stopped. I don’t have hardly any ripe tomatoes and now many of the plants are looking quite ill. I guess tomatoes aren’t all that fond of weeks of triple digit weather. So I was very happy to finally see a red Brandywine. Brandywines are probably the most flavorful tomatoes to grow. They are large, but so juicy and tasty that none ever goes to waste. I have my eye on this one for dinner.
