I used to buy my tomato plants at Lowe’s but this year I ordered some heirloom seeds and I’ll never go back to “Big Boy” and “Early Girl”. The difference between these gardening center standards and their ancestors is┬ásort of like the day my dad brought home our first colored tv, or the day I received my first pair of glasses and realized that one could actually see individual leaves on the trees instead of a blurry mass of green.

I have fallen in love with Black Krim, Big Rainbow, Goldman’s Italian American, and Yellow Pear. My kids have discovered they love tomatoes too and each have their favorites.

Yum, yum, yum…
