Wordless Wednesday - Patience Reaps Reward

From humble beginnings















Some of the varieties I'm growing, besides the big cherry tomatoes include:

  • The Big Rainbow, a sweet, mild & gorgeous, pictured above with striking yellow and red streaked flesh. 

  • Djena Lee's Golden Girl (orange), also pictured above, which we ate too fast to take a picture sliced.  

  • The Black Krim Heirloom Tomato, a "medium-sized, very dark maroon beefsteak, with wonderfully rich flavor." 

  • The Rutgers Heirloom Tomato, pictured above - a "legendary 'Jersey' tomato, introduced in 1934: a cross between J.T.D. (an old New Jersey variety from the Campbell Soup Co.) and Marglobe. Its flavor, both for slicing and cooking." 

Hope you are enjoying fresh Summer treats from your garden as well!

Your tomatoes look so yummy. And your pictures tell a great story. Garden grown tomatoes are one of life's true joys.
