The best part about having a house? Having a garden!
These little beauties are coming along nicely. Of the three types of tomatoes I’ve got, two types are coming in. Either the third is a later bloomer (I hope,) or it’s being blocked from the sun too much by the bigger plants.
The biggest ones are the Brandywines:
These are huge heirloom tomatoes on the same size as the more common beefsteak tomatoes. They’re supposed to have much more flavor too. Apparently this strain was rediscovered in 1985 and has quickly become the most popular heirloom tomato.
The Japanese Black Trifele originated in Russia instead of Japan. It’s apparently going to be the size and shape of a Bartlett Pear, but will be a more purple color.
