    I love Campari tomatoes! The other nasty things they call tomatoes at the grocery aren't edible, but campari's are pretty darn good when you can't have homegrown.

    I just got some pineapple plants yesterday.
    and....I found out about where to get the Cherokee Purple.
    My wife asked "are we going to live off tomatoes?", I said "maybe".
    Going to be a lot of tomatoes this year.

    yesterday while watering, i peeked under my cherokee's skirt. there is a mutant runaway tomato under there. it is about the size of a tennis ball!! the rest of the fruit are tiny..i guess that one got an early start.

    i only have 10 plants. my romas took the recent good weather and blasted out some fruit. all about the size of my thumb. this is the first year of fortifying my gardens with my own compost. my plants are about 5 feet tall..should be good if this cold front moves along.

    with 10 plants i am gonna have a tomato problem. you big garden guys..that is a commitment!

    Every year we've got a few standbys we always plant, and then we mess around with the remaining space in the bed.

    Standbys:
    Juliet Hybrid
    Cherokee Purple
    Sungold
    Verna Orange

    We've also tried and liked:
    San Marzano Redorata
    Zapoteca Pink Ribbed

    Just ate my first homegrown Cherokee Purple, basil, and mozz sandwich.

    Summer is here.

    I'm in Austin, so I had plants in the ground by the first of March. Early Girls are at their peak, and the good stuff is just now starting to come in. It's easy to gloat about being able to eat homegrown tomatoes by Memorial Day, but by July 4 my garden will be a wasteland, except for the heat-hardy peppers.

    At least by then, I'll have a freezer full of tomatoes (some blanched with basil, some roasted).

    I'm getting ready to move to the Midwest, though, so I'm already starting to think about a greenhouse. I like having my own greens and herbs as close to year-round as I can get.

    Here's from yesterday, with some Early Girl and Green Zebra -- but honestly the Cherokee Purple is so much better....
